About The Melody Lynne Vineyard

From the heart of Washington in the states’ largest wine growing region, our carefully managed Yakima River Canyon vineyard features hand harvested premium certified Cab Franc, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The unique climate of the Yakima River Canyon is of cold winters, long dry summers with low humidity that produces wines that are very fruit-forward, like California wines, but which also retain some of the balance and structure of European wines. Specifically, the growing season is one of warm days/cool nights that help retain the balance of acid and sugar levels in the grape which give our wines their characteristic balance in flavors. he peak ripening of the grapes occurs during the last four to six weeks of the growing season, with the grapes hanging on the vines a little longer than in California. Deficit irrigation aids berries to develop tannins as well as other aroma and profile characteristics that are brought out in the resulting wines. The Canyons slightly longer growing season also allows the grapes to be harvested at a cooler temperature than other (more southerly) wine regions. Thus we are able to precisely control the timing and amount of water that the vines receive which has a large influence on the resulting yields and quality!
