Wilridge Distillery's Barrel-aged Brandy
Celebrate the smells and the flavors of the season by sipping hot spiced wine or brandy while sitting on the edge of the Wilridge Estate Vineyard.
In addition to the award-winning wines we've have produced at the vineyard on Naches Heights the Wilridge Distillery features a hand-hammered copper alembic potstill for making brandies from the estate vineyard's grapes, apples and pears. The traditional potstill allows Wilridge to capture all of the delicate fruit aromas in the brandies, building a truly local palate to pair with this fresh, cider-splashed apple crisp.
And, like the Estate Wines, our Estate Brandy is certified Organic, Biodynamic and SalmonSafe, consistent with Wilridge's reputation as the "greenest" vineyard, winery and distillery in Washington State.
2014 Wilridge Estate Pear Brandy released Sept 2018
