The Ziegler family has a long history in the Columbia Gorge, farming and harvesting fruit on Underwood Mountain for five generations and over one hundred years. As a brand new business we want to identify ourselves with the rich history we have here with farming. It's amazing that we can continue the legacy that Nathan's great grandfather started so many years ago. For years the Columbia River Gorge has had the perfect soil for growing a variety of fruit including apples and pears. In more recent years the Ziegler family has been growing and harvesting grapes, and have found that it's also the perfect soil for that. We believe our wine produced from this same soil has such a complexity of flavor due to the history of what has been grown here. It's exciting to be able to continue the farming legacy that began five generations ago.
We are offering wine tasting every Thursday through Sunday from 12-6 at our vineyard/winery/tasting room located at 31 Memory Lane in Underwood, Washington. Come by and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio, made from the grapes that surround you while taking in the stunning views of the Columbia River Gorge, Hood River and Mt. Hood! We are pouring our two wines, 2009 Tempranillo and 2010 Pinot Gris. Our Estate grown Tempranillo is “a beautiful pale red. And it smells varietally correct, with Tempranillo nuances of tobacco leaf and leather above centered cherry fruit. The palate displays plenty of vibrancy, and a truly welcoming flavor profile, a sort of cherry-fig paste interwoven with citrus oil.” Quote given by esteemed wine aficionado Paul Zitarelli
Our Estate grown Pinot Gris vines thrive in the moderate Underwood climate and the product is a result of that. It's a very balanced tasting Pinot Gris with some acidity, but also a buttery finish with notes of honey and pear.
