Owned and Farmed by Joe and Susan Hattrup, Elephant Mountain Vineyard began in 1995.
Sitting on the southern slopes of Rattlesnake Ridge at the base of Elephant Mountain, the vineyard ebbs and flows on a series of gentle, south-facing slopes at an elevation that reaches 1460 feet at its peak. Above the Missoula Flood Plain, atop prehistoric soils, this site accumulates around 3500 GDDs annually and sees a growing season that has 30 additional frost free days compared to lower sites in the Yakima Valley.
In 1998 the first two blocks were planted to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and since then has expanded to nearly 90 acres planted to a mix of Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Sangiovese, and Riesling.
