Paul Beveridge (yes, that's his real name) fell in love with wine at an early age and has been making wine for more than 20 years. Paul strives to produce wines with a more "European" focus and character than many new world wines.
Winemaker Paul Beveridge has been making Wilridge wines for over twenty years. Right from the beginning, Paul has focused on wines that reflect the "terroir" of their vineyard sites rather than current fashion or the latest winemaking innovations. As such, his wines are more "European" in character than most new world wines.
He recently furthered his European philosophy of letting the grapes and the wines reflect their place of origin by planting his own vineyard on Naches Heights near Yakima where the vines are tended organically and biodynamically.
