Malbec - 0.75 acres

Planted in 2014, with it's first harvest in 2016. Malbec's origin is French, specifically from Cahors, where it is commonly called "Côt". Today, roughly 70% of Malbec vineyards call Argentina home. There is a bit of lore associate with how Malbec became a dominant South American varietal. Most attribute the decrease in French acreage to a Phylloxera epidemic that wiped out significant portion of French plantings.

Monument Vineyard is located in the Lake Chelan AVA and encircles our tasting room and production facility. It is roughly an acre of Malbec vines. Beginning after harvest of 2020, we started transitioning the vineyard toward biodynamic farming practices.
