Our wines are distinctive and expressive of the cobblestone terroir in the Rocks District of Milton Freewater.
My Grandfather Carlo arrived in the Port of New York as a young Italian immigrant from Reggio Calabria, Italy in the 1930's. Settling into the Pacific Northwest Italian community in Seattle, he lived out his American dream. Making wine was one of his life's greatest passions, and he was very proud of the fine taste and quality of his wine.
We are located on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley in the Rocks District of Milton Freewater AVA. This is an area known for its cobblestone terroir. Estate wines have been crafted here by us, Tim & Lori Kennedy since our first vintage in 2007. Our award winning wines demonstrate that dreams do come true of owning a vineyard and making our own wine from this amazing terroir. With every vintage, we embark on the loving process it takes to get our grapes into your glass.
