CHASING RAIN

When people think of Washington State, they think of Seattle; of coffee and hipsters…and rain. Lots and lots of rain. But east of the Cascades it’s a different story. The landscape turns cowboy movie dry and dusty pretty quickly. The Red Mountain AVA, where we grow our grapes, gets a mere 5 inches of rainfall annually. And that’s where our name, Chasing Rain, comes from. Minimal rainfall, a dry climate, and fast-draining soil force more sugar and energy into the fruit, not the leaf canopy. The result is intense notes of fruit in the complex and highly structured Chasing Rain Cab Sauvignon, Red Blend, and Merlot. One slow sip will reveal our obsession with the craft of winemaking.
