About the Vineyard

Located in the Columbia Valley near Pasco, Sagemoor is one of the largest producing vineyards in Washington.† The vines are planted on southwest facing hillsides with dramatic views of the Columbia River.

 

The regionís warm and sunny days allow the grapes to ripen fully and cool nights keep the fruit acids high, creating flavorful and well-balanced wines.

 

Tasting Notes

Aromas of crisp pear and ripe apples.† Full bodied and lush with balanced acidity.† Flavors of dried apricots, pineapple and a kiss of oak.††

 

Food & Wine Pairing

Our 2007 Chardonnay would go well with dishes like grilled salmon with basil pesto butter or crab and pineapple ceviche with avocado pancakes.
