Gard Vintners grows their grapes sustainably on the slopes of the Columbia Valley. They have been dedicated to creating world-class wines since 2006 when the winery opened. The family has been farming the Royal Slope for over 40 years, leading to decades of knowledge about the growing process. This allows them to craft incredible reds, whites, roses, and even sparkling wines. They have three tasting rooms, in Walla Walla, Woodinville, and Ellensburg where you can try their award-winning wines. Their mission is to capture and bottle the unique characteristics of the land they farm, and they've gathered a skilled team of growers and winemakers to make their mission come to life.
