Wine in this category is typically either simple, or is a wine that would be much better a few years down the road. ‘Modernist Project’ wines are about putting as much into the bottle as possible. The intent is to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity with regards to variety—that is merlot that tastes like merlot—and to the vineyard—wine that tastes like where it was grown. The wines are full of flavor, balanced, and true to their place of origin.
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
Goose Ridge Vineyards and Estate Winery is a family-owned and operated vineyard and winery dedicated to limited production, handcrafted wines from select, estate-grown grapes. The Monson family's vineyard was established in 1998 under the direction of Dr. Walter Clore, Father of the Washington Wine Industry. The 1,400 acre vineyard is planted on a south-facing slope in Washington's Columbia Valley appellation adjacent to Red Mountain and consistently yields fruit of exceptional character and complexity. The Estate Winery is dedicated to handcrafting exquisite Bordeaux and Rhone varietal wines.
