At Owen Roe, we are committed to practicing the highest standards of winemaking. Since our first vintage in 1999, our goal has been simple; to produce beautiful wines from superior sites in the Pacific Northwest. A place where the fruit ripens slowly and fully, resulting in excellent acidity and balance. All of our grapes are hand harvested, handled with minimal processing, small-lot fermented and aged in French oak barrels.
In these images, winery owners (from left to right: Julie and Ben Wolff, David and Angelica O'Reilly) are shown breaking ground in Union Gap for our 2013 winery project. Completion of the first phase was September 2013, allowing our crew to prepare for blending and Spring bottling. Our new winery is now home to our Washington wine production and will become a destination winery for visitors to the Yakima Valley, through our future events and tasting room.
