St. Helena’s Duckhorn Wine Company has acquired a 20-acre vineyard site in Washington State’s Red Mountain AVA. The unplanted site is located near the top of Red Mountain, at an elevation between 1,100 to 1,300 feet, above the frost zone, and features gently rolling slopes, an southwest exposure, and Warden series sandy loam soils with a basalt layer deep enough to allow the vines to fully take root, according to Duckhorn.

The Duckhorn viticultural team will begin planting in the spring, with the majority of the vineyard planted to cabernet sauvignon. Once developed, the new vineyard will serve as a source of estate fruit for Canvasback Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
