Wilridge Estate Vineyard
At Wilridge Vineyard, a simple wine tasting experience transforms into an afternoon full of adventure: picnic, hike, bike, rock climb, or enjoy the wildlife.
Planted in 2007, Wilridge Vineyard is a rare Organic and Demeter certified Biodynamic vineyard -- the "greenest winery in Washington." Twenty-three varieties of grapes are planted in the unique loess soil composed mostly of windblown volcanic ash over volcanic rock brought by ancient eruptions from local volcanoes. In the shadow of the Cascade Range the vineyard sits at about 1500 ft elevation -- providing long sunny days and cool nights to help the grapes develop lovely fruit.
Experience the Vineyard
With over 80 acres of vineyards, orchards and sageland bluffs to explore, a seemingly simple wine tasting experience transforms into an afternoon full of adventure. Your visit can include wine and spirits tasting, picnicing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, wildlife viewing and relaxing on the lawn.
