WALLA WALLA'S FIRST
USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC VINEYARD
Stonemarker is situated along Caldwell Creek, in the southeastern part of Walla Walla Valley AVA. The 3.5 acres under vine are primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The vineyard sits at just under 1000 feet elevation, and features soils made up of classic Walla Walla silty loam. Since the vines are planted along a south facing slope, they receive ideal sun exposure for optimal ripeness and depth of flavor.
Originally planted in 1998, the Stonemarker estate vineyard is sustainably managed and one of just two certified organic vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. When the transition to organic viticulture began in 2017, we incorporated regenerative practices to improve soil health and ecology, as well as completely eliminated the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides. The vineyard received its USDA Organic Certification in 2020, and at the time, was the only Certified Organic Vineyard in the AVA.
