the lineup

Our 2019 Lydian reds are here! A welcome respite from recent warmer growing seasons, led to a beautiful, classic Washington vintage.  These wines are refreshing, aromatic, and while completely enjoyable by the glass right out of the gate, will age beautifully. We have also now switched completely to the clean and convenient Stelvin enclosures!
