Our wines

Our wines are handcrafted from vines we tend year round. On occasion, we blend with other wines produced in Washington state to round out flavors and create something really unique.

We are located at the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge in Western Washington State.  As a result, we have many of the same characteristics of the Willamette Valley region in Oregon.  As such, our primary focus for a long time has been estate-grown Pinot Noir, of which we have about 3 acres.  We also grow perhaps Western Washington’s only Cabernet Sauvignon (only a quarter acre, but what a quarter acre!)

We’ve always had a test vineyard with several varieties of white wines that have traditionally blended together for a white table wine.  In 2005, however, we planted about two acres of four white varietals that have always done well in the test vineyard and are particularly well suited to our climate: Pinot Gris, Semillon, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc.

2009 was the first year that we harvested enough fruit from these grapes to produce varietal wines.  We are excited to have released English Estate’s first ever varietal whites just recently.  Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, just a little sweet with nice, fruity flavors, is great to sip alone or with food, and our bone-dry 2009 Semillon pairs nicely with cheeses, chicken and fish.

Our Sweet Fortified Dessert wines have always been popular as an aperitif or served with desserts.
