About the Vineyard

Airport Ranch is located at the foot of the Rattlesnake Mountains in the Yakima Valley. All of the vineyard blocks are situated within a 3 mile radius of the original WWII airbase. Within this range, there is a considerable amount of diversity of soil and microclimatic conditions. To maximize quality, we carefully match grape varietals to the most suitable sites.  The interaction of our geographic, climatic, and environmental conditions in conjunction with our vineyard management directly affect the quality and personality of our wine.
