Roasted coffee beans and cherry cola aromas. On the palate, bright ripe fruits abound. Sweet plum, cherry and blackberry pie come to mind, layered with vanilla, milk chocolate, and rich, velvety tannins.
|Since 1999 we have been producing handmade wines from the remote and arid Columbia Valley AVA in Eastern Washington. Our fruit comes from some of the regionís most prestigious vineyards including: Boushey, Weinbau, Bacchus, Champoux, Milbrandt, Klipsun and Seven Hills. Our style is defined by moderate alcohols, firm structures and varietal accuracy. Our wines are concentrated, ripe and juicy without being overblown or heavy handed.
Our name comes from three of the three most prominent rivers in Eastern Washington: Columbia, Snake, and Walla Walla.
In 1999, we broke ground on the 16-acre site that is now home to our 18,000 sq. ft. facility. Set atop a small knoll overlooking the surrounding vineyards and Mill Creek, the winery features peaceful views of nearby Whitman Mission and the Blue Mountains in the distance.
The interior of our winery is divided into two distinct areas. There is a 14,000 sq. ft. cellar and barrel room that is used for the production and storage of fine wines, and a 4,000 sq. ft. area that includes a tasting room, meeting room, and wine retail store. Just off the tasting room is a three-hole golf course for winery guests.
The tasting room features vaulted ceilings, a stone hearth fireplace and exposed timber trusses, adding a rustic feel to the contemporary exterior. The meeting room accommodates up to 75 people for business conferences and other group functions. In the adjacent tasting room and retail space, winery visitors can taste and purchase Three Riversí wines and merchandise. A spacious deck off of the tasting room is used for tastings and entertainment during the warm season.
