A New Vineyard is Planted for Blooms
Ken and Virginia have spent time each summer and fall visiting vineyards in Eastern Washington walking the rows tasting grapes and talking to growers to find the best grapes to make their Washington wines.
The main source of grapes is in the Rattlesnake Hills region of the Yakima Valley, where the Syrah and Viognier from Julie Bosma were grown. Julie Bosma has since planted a new section of vineyard exclusively for Blooms Winery, so we now have an Estate Vineyard and source our Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Malbec and Petit Verdot there, with several more varieties to come!
Whidbey Island grown grapes, when available are from our few rows and sometimes from other local vineyards.
And of course, we do grow our own rhubarb for that fabulous Ambrosia wine that folks love so much!
