Cairdeas Vineyards 'Grandpas Vineyard' - Lake Chelan
Named after the man that Charlie most looked up to growing up, who is now looking down on us as we plant our first estate vineyard on the winery property (Spring 2015). A wonderful Southwestern facing slope with rocky soils. We are growing two varietals on this site, Clairette Blanche and Syrah. Clairette Blanche is the most planted white grape in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation and we will be only the second vineyard in Washington State to grow this varietal. Syrah is our favorite grape that is grown in Lake Chelan. We feel that the rocky soils on our property with the slope facing the lake make this an excellent site for Syrah.
Varietals – Clairette Blanche (ENTAV 208), Picardan, Syrah (Joseph Phelps clone)
