We are a micro-winery with case production of 500. We grow five varieties of Northern Italian grapes, all planted and harvested by hand: Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Pinot Nero and Pinot Grigio. The wines are made to pair very well with food. Oak barrels and stainless tanks are used.
We started making wine in 2009 and converted our tractor barn into a tasting room. There will probably be a small tasting fee. You are welcome to buy a glass of wine and sit out on the wine patio. Green Bluff is especially pretty in the Summer.
The tasting room [map] is open depending on events and season. Please call 509-238-2276 for that day's schedule. SORRY, NO MINORS or dogs.
TASTING ROOM HOURS:
October: Sat-Sun Noon-6:00 Summer: by chance
special events coming summer 2013
Green Bluff, WA
The Spokane area has a very short growing season. Pruning techniques are used to encourage ripening. The reds are left on the vines until October harvest.
The vines are dry-farmed. The farm is a former pear orchard and blue grass field. Green Bluff is blessed with long hot summer days and cool nights.
