BackgroundWith more than a century of winemaking and farming experience, High Heaven Vintners believes in growing great grapes first to make amazing wine. Located in Eastern Washington State, High Heaven Vintners is inspired by the natural backdrop that surrounds their vines. From its protected location in the Rain Shadow formed by the Cascade Mountains, High Heaven Vintners is protected from harsh elements, creating a warm, sunny, dry climate ideal for grape growing. High Heaven Vintners wines are estate grown & bottled; this means 100% of the grapes are grown or controlled by the winery.
VinificationRiesling grapes are harvested from silt loam soils of Zillah Ranch vineyard, which produce fruit forward wines with crisp acidity. The juice is fermented in stainless steel vats at 45°F for six months.
