The Walla Walla Valley AVA is uniquely situated in southwest Washington with part of the appellation stretching across state lines into Oregon. Dusted Valley has one Estate vineyard on the Washington side (Sconni Block) and two on the Oregon side (Stoney Vine and Southwind) of the AVA. Sconni Block, Stoney Vine and Southwind all lie in different meso climates with distinct soil profiles. This allows us to express the sense of place each vineyard has and the unique role each of them plays in our portfolio.
In addition to our Estate program, we are proud to work with accomplished viticulturists from premier vineyards in the Columbia Valley who custom farm for us. As an example, when compared to other boutique producers, we employ unique varietal specific canopy management and extremely low yields. These strategic partnerships with other growers also allow us to take advantage of the unique meso climates, higher elevations and southwest aspects of other American Viticulture Areas we work with outside of the Walla Walla Valley AVA.
