Klipsun Vineyards is located on the high desert plateau of the famous Red Mountain AVA in the Yakima Valley. Our longtime friends (the onJy growers who were guests at our wedding almost 25years ago!) Tricia and David Gelles own the vineyard and several years back their vineyard was named one of the top in the US by the Wine Spectator. The combination of the vineyard’s ideal location on Red Mountain and their meticulous vineyard management mean that their fruit is one of the absolute highest quality. The fruit exhibits lots of black currant and spice and when properly handled in the winery, shows a great deal of finesse with just the right level of tannin. In our opinion, Klipsun is more like one of the great vineyards of Bordeaux than anything.
