Great wines begin in the vineyard! Airfield Estates uses 100% estate grown fruit. Their first vines were planted in 1968 by Don Miller. Today, the estate vineyard spans over 860 acres and includes 27 different varieties. The vineyard is located at the foot of the Rattlesnake Mountains in the Yakima Valley. All of the vineyard blocks are situated within a 3 mile radius of the original WWII airbase. Within this range, there is a considerable amount of diversity of soil and microclimatic conditions. To maximize quality, they carefully match grape varietals to the most suitable sites. The interaction of their geographic, climatic, and environmental conditions in conjunction with their vineyard management directly affect the quality and personality of their wines.
