About Us

Kent & Allison VanArnam

Living the dream. One vine at a time.

 
Our story began in 2004. Back then I’d take day trips from our home near Vancouver Washington to Central Washington in search of the perfect place to plant grapes and build a winery.  Over the span of a few years, I got to know the premier grape growing regions of Washington state quite well and after a few years of research, decided the Rattlesnake Hills AVA is where we wanted to call home.

In 2007, we purchased our 40-acre property and since then we’ve been planting vines, building our winery, building our tasting room and most recently building our dream home. Over these past 16 years, we’ve built a business we are quite proud of. People that visit us like our space, our concerts, food and cottage rental. But the heart of what we do here is make the best wines we can. One year to the next.

Our wine production started off small and every year we grow due to the wonderful support of our customers. If you come by our place, you’ll most likely see me in the winery on a forklift or perhaps outside on one of our tractors.
