Stonecap Wines are handcrafted entirely from estate grown grapes from the renowned Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard in Washington State's Columbia Valley. This expansive (1300 acres) and highly regarded vineyard allows the Monson Family to produce stunning quality wines while remaining sensibly priced.
Goose Ridge Vineyard is located on the ridge of Goose Hill, adjacent to Red Mountain in the Columbia Valley, Washington where the Yakima River converges with Red Mountain and Horse Heaven Hills. The vineyard has gentle, south-facing slopes and warm temperatures. The Monson family planted the vineyard in small blocks to produce high quality estate-grown wines. The 1,300 acre vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Riesling, Viognier and Pinot Gris.
Washington State's famed Columbia Valley produces extraordinary grapes in large part due to the area's great soils—the result of massive flooding during the last Ice Age. Light and porous, these soils are frequently wind-blown, and the windy tops of the many high hills and ridgelines of the region are typically devoid of soil leaving a "stonecap" of rocks behind.
