Smockshop Band

Smockshop Band

Smockshop Band is an exploration of the Columbia Gorge. The Gorge contains a diverse range of landscapes within a small area. It was this multitude of potential places to make wine that drew us to the Gorge. We've been working on developing relationships with growers and landowners who share our vision of farming. We now lease and farm twenty acres of land outside of Hiyu and purchase fruit from an additional few more. All of the vineyards are farmed naturally and allow us access to the full spectrum of possible flavors from high altitude, cool climate sites on the western end of the Gorge to the more Mediterranean, desert influenced sites to the east.

It’s planted to all fifteen of the allowable varieties historically planted in Chateauneuf-du-pape, but with a far greater ratio of white to red grapes than may have ever existed there.

The plantation is based on planting of grapes in central Italy in the 2nd century AD and is a mixed field with many clones of Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Montepulciano, cilliegiolo, aleatico, trebbiano, cannaiolo nero and others.
