Keystone Ranch was planted in 1889 on the banks of the Entiat River, just a stones throw from the mighty Columbia. Native Americans camped, gathered berries and hunted here each fall. Pioneers planted 125 acres of apples, pears and cherry trees and sold them under the Keystone Fruit Company label for decades. Now a new generation has planted wine grapes in this unique terroir. The grapes are grown in alluvial stony soil, watered with the pure mountain snow melt of the Entiat Glacier, crushed, fermented and gravity flowed into our century old cellar for aging. Enjoy!
In 2018 we decided to make a rose summer wine with some of our Pinot Noir grapes. The grapes were crushed and then left to “sit on the lees” for 24 hours. (Normally rose wines rest on the lees for 12-24 hours, the longer they rest the more intense the color and flavor.) When we came back the next day the wine was a beautiful pink raspberry color. This is a mouthful of flavor rose that will be perfect for a summer picnic.
