About Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard

The Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard is located at nearly 900 feet of elevation three miles north in Lowden, Washington. The soils are layered with wind-blown loess over Ritzville silt loam over fractured basalt. There are small vineyard blocks planted on various aspects to the south, east and west. The Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard was first planted in 1977 on third generation family land previously utilized for cattle and wheat production. Since those early years the vineyard has grown to the current 40 acres planted predominantly to cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and cabernet franc. There are various experimental northern Italian and Rhone varieties planted as well. All grapes are sustainably grown at Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard. In the fall of 2008, after a two year certification process, the vineyard became certified by the International Organisation for Biological Control (IOBC) via LIVE as well as Salmon Safe.
