Willow Crest Winery was founded in 1995 by David J. Minick, a longtime grape grower in the Yakima Valley. The Minick Family first planted wine grapes on their Roza farm, North of Prosser in 1982. David chose to expand his love for raising grapes to the next level by making premium wine from a small portion of the family vineyard. To date, the 200-acre vineyard supplies more than 8,000 cases of award winning Willow Crest wines.
The Willow Crest Estate Vineyard is located six miles north of Prosser at a 1,300’ elevation overlooking the vast Yakima Valley. Focusing on Pinot Gris, Riesling and Syrah, Willow Crest Winery uses estate grown fruit that Minick personally plants, cultivates and harvests to produce Willow Crest’s premium wines.
