Goose Ridge

GOOSE RIDGE ESTATE VINEYARDS AND WINERY is a family-owned and operated winery dedicated to limited production, handcrafted wines from select, estate-grown grapes. The Monson family's vineyard is planted on a south-facing slope in Washington's Columbia Valley adjacent to Red Mountain that consistently yields rich, ripe grapes.

Winemaker Andrew Wilson has his pick of the vineyard. Fermenting and aging wines in small lots from a handful of blocks carefully selected for their exceptional character and complexity is exactly what the Monsons had in mind for Goose Ridge when they founded the winery in 1999. The family has farmed in the Columbia Valley for almost five decades and is known for their commitment to quality. Goose Ridge Vineyard is built on that tradition.

VINEYARDS

Established under the direction and vision of the late Dr. Walter Clore, Father of the Washington Wine Industry, Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard observed its first harvest in 1998. Guided by the belief that great wines begin in the vineyard, all the grapes are estate grown in Eastern Washington's sun-drenched Columbia Valley.

Sheltered from Seattle's maritime climate by the towering Cascade Mountain Range, the vineyard receives less than 8 inches of rainfall annually. It is a gently sloped, south-facing site adjacent to Red Mountain. Long, warm summer days and cool nights produce grapes noted for their ripe, rich character.

Winemaker Andrew Wilson identifies his favorite blocks for preferential care throughout the growing season including careful management of crop levels for low yields and hand-pruned canopies for even ripening.

The Monson family’s pride and dedication to these highly regarded vineyards and their respect for the land’s past, present and future is evident in the farming practices they maintain and the stunning quality of the wines they craft.
