Destiny Ridge

DR Block 15 Sign

At the core of W.T. Vintners is a truly special vineyard site called Destiny Ridge. The vineyard faces southward, looking down on the Columbia River in the heart of the Horse Heaven Hills. Catching light from above and reflecting upwards from below, Destiny Ridge experiences one of the longest growing periods in the world. With 263 acres planted to grape vines, this precious vineyard is home to over a dozen varietals, both red and white.

The Horse Heaven Hills are considered a hot AVA (American Viticulture Area), but with Destiny Ridges’s proximity to the constant cool river breeze, the scorching summer temperatures are moderated, allowing for the development of rich flavors in harmony with vibrant acidity. With so many varietal choices within a single vineyard, deciding on which to focus on can be a challenge. W.T. Vintners has at this stage, continued to devote ourselves to Syrah, believing it to be a grape that best articulates the potential of Destiny Ridge Vineyard, and showcases Washington’s unique terroir.
