We create wines that show the diversity of Washington – utilizing minimalist techniques, showcasing regional terroir and purity of fruit.
In 2007, EFESTĒ planted three estate vineyards in two separate appellations in Washington State. Each of the three sites were planted with varietals and employ techniques uniquely suited to maximizing the potential for the particular vineyard site. EFESTE’s winemaking team works closely with our Vineyard Manager at all three sites, Washington grape-growing legend Dick Boushey.
With our Estates reaching the age of 10 years, we have noticed a significant leap in quality, concentration, and character of our fruit from the EFESTĒ’s Estate vineyards, and we are very excited to share the results of our work with our guests.
Red Mountain AVA
Planted on a slope reaching from 650 to 600 feet elevation of Red Mountain’s Northeastern tip, Angela’s Vineyard showcases remarkable texture, purity of fruit, and concentration. In addition to sourcing small parcels of fruit to some of Washington’s finest winemaking programs, we have primarily featured Angela’s Syrah in our Ceidleigh Syrah, our extremely-limited Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and our Estate Cabernet Franc.
Planted Acres: 18.9
Planted Varietals: Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Wines: Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Ceidleigh Syrah
Soil: The soil’s high alkalinity and calcium carbonate content, combined with its granular consistency, enables each vine to develop a strong root system. These types of soils allow roots to grow deep to get the nutrients and moisture they need.
TAYLOR MAG VINEYARD
Red Mountain AVA
Planted on flatter terrain, Taylor Mag is situated across Sunset Road from Angela’s Vineyard on Red Mountain. Taylor Mag is ideally situated for Bordeaux varietals and is primarily planted with three different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon. Its densely-planted vines and ideal sun exposure produce a dark, robust Cab Sauv with Red Mountain’s signature complexity and minerality. Our Taylor Mag Cabernet Sauvignon series is exclusively made from this vineyard, along with our Estate Petit Verdot.
Planted Acres: 17.1
Planted Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Wines: Taylor Mag Cabernet, Upright Merlot, Petit Verdot
Soil: High alkalinity and calcium carbonate content, combined with its granular consistency. Utilizes a system of high-density planting and single-cordon trellising, which work to create fruit with a higher flavor concentration
OLDFIELD ESTATE VINEYARD
Yakima Valley AVA
Oldfield Vineyard might be the most unique of all our estates. Situated at an extremely high elevation for the AVA, 1,400 feet, Oldfield’s soils lay above the Missoula Flood Plane, meaning that these soils are 100% indigenous and ancient. This rocky terrain and warm, even climate produce a wine that’s equal parts pretty and powerful. The soft, feminine fruit profile is classic Washington, while its gravely mineral tones bring complexity and balance to our fruit. Planted almost exclusively with Rhone varietals.
Planted Acres: 21.9
Planted Varietals: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Merlot
Wines: Oldfield Estate Rosé, Jolie Bouche Syrah
Yakima Valley, with its sunny slopes in the foothills, provides the perfect growing conditions for producing intensely flavored, balanced, and complex wines such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah. Long sun-drenched days and cool evenings in this desert climate yield bold, hearty, and luscious world-class wines.
