About Ambassador

Good land stewardship is the responsibility of every vineyard owner and one that we take very seriously. We cannot accomplish our goal of making a world class wine unless we nurture our vines in such a manner that promotes their health and well-being. Controlling the quality starts with controlling and implementing sustainable farming practices. In our mind, this consists of 3 key factors: -Being economically viable -Being socially supportive -Being ecologically sound. For these reasons we contracted with the top vineyard manager in the state of Washington, Dick Boushey.
