Desert Wind Winery
A love of big, bold red wines led the family to purchase vineyard land in Eastern Washington’s Wahluke Slope AVA in the early 1990s. A portion of the fruit from these vineyards was historically bottled under the Duck Pond label, but in the late 1990s the family began discussing a second wine label to showcase the exceptional fruit coming from these vineyard sites.
In 2001, Desert Wind wines were launched in the marketplace, and quickly gained a loyal following, especially for the flagship Bordeaux-style red blend called Ruah. Construction on a production and crush facility in Prosser, Washington, was completed in 2004. In 2007, the Southwest-inspired Desert Wind Winery opened, complete with a spacious tasting room, onsite restaurant, and luxury accommodations.
