Wilridge Winery Vineyard | Seattle, WA

Wilridge is Seattle's oldest winery.  In 2007 owner/operators Lysle Wilhelmi and Paul Beveridge planted a certified organic and biodynamic estate vineyard on Naches Heights near Yakima.  In 2010, Wilridge became the first WA winery to sell wine in refillable bottles and kegs since Prohibition.

#1 Pinot Grigio

Made Italian style, Wilridge Pinot Grigio is grown in the Yakima Valley and is perfect for summer parties.

#2 Estate Nebbiolo Naches Heights

"Excellent"  Seattle Wine Awards.  Nebbiolo is the great red grape of Northern Italy.  Wilridge grows Nebbiolo organically and biodynamically on Naches Heights just west of Yakima.  A versatile food wine, Nebbiolo may also be aged for many years -- if one can avoid temptation...

#3 Malbec

Great body, full, round berry and black cherry tones, long smooth, silky finish. Pairs just as well with burgers or pizza as it does with more ambitious culinary masterpieces.

#4 Estate Red Dessert Wine

Made from organic, biodynamic estate grown Portuguese grape varieties and fortified with Estate brandy, this is our homage to the great vintage Ports but in a drier style
