Harvest 2015 Quintessence Vineyards
Behind-the-scenes with Lauren Ashton Cellars
Kit began the 2015 Harvest season with a visit to the breathtaking Quintessence Vineyards, part of the Red Mountain AVA, in Benton City, WA. They currently grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and several other varieties — with Cabernet Sauvignon comprising 229 acres within the 300 acre vineyard.
Did you know? The Red Mountain AVA gets 2 more hours of sunlight per day during the growing season than Napa Valley!
Now here’s a view at some stunning Cab grapes from behind Kit’s lens. We can’t wait to see where these grapes will take us!
