Check out our block 26 Syrah! These lovely clusters will go into L'Ecole No 41 Winery Estate Syrah.


We spotted our first purple berries today in the Sangiovese! As a fun comparison, we also spotted our first purple berries in Sangiovese on this day in 2013.


The vines have been growing like crazy with the recent heat. Check out bloom happening in our Carmenère! We've also seen bloom in Merlot, Syrah, and Sangiovese. As a general rule of thumb there's 100 days from bloom to harvest. This means we should be picking grapes the second week of September.


Despite all this rain, the grape vines are still growing.


We've seen bud break in all the varieties we grow over the last two weeks. This is Cabernet Sauvignon, which is the last grape we see bud break in.


Bud break and blue skies!


We are going to see bud break in our Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc at any moment.


We've finally had some nice days and buds are beginning to swell. Bud break is just around the corner!


It's a beautiful morning in the vineyard.


Check it out! We finally saw some sap flow which means the vines are starting to wake up. This puts us about 2 weeks behind last year.

Walla Walla Union-Bulletin

This is exciting news for Walla Walla wine. Seven Hills Vineyard donates grapes to Vital, a non-profit winery that benefits the local S.O.S. clinic. We are thrilled Hollywood gets to try the wine made from our grapes.

March Cellars and Vital Wines will be poured for attendees in a Feb. 25 pre-Oscars gifting suite at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles the day before the Academy Awards banquet.

March and Vital founder and winemaker Ashley Trout said this is the first time a Walla Walla winery has been invited to attend and pour at an event leading into the Oscars.


It's beginning to look a lot like autumn in the vineyard.


This Petit Verdot is the last of the grapes to leave the vineyard in 2016!

L'Ecole No. 41 on top of the world Down Under thanks to Ferguson

Congratulations to L'Ecole No. 41 for winning another international trophy. The 2013 Ferguson won Best Bordeaux Blend at the Six Nations Wine Challenge. Ferguson Vineyard is just up the hill from Seven Hills Vineyard and both are part of SeVein.

For the second time in three years, L'Ecole No. 41's Ferguson red blend has landed a trophy as one of the top wines in the world, this time in Australia.


We only have 10 acres left to harvest! The canopies are starting to shut down and the vineyard is beginning to show off its autumn colors.


Harvest is still going strong. After 3 weeks, we have picked over 40% of the vineyard. Today we picked 7 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Seven Hills Vineyard in beautiful Walla Walla WA


We kicked off harvest today with Sauvignon Blanc. Next week we start picking Merlot and Syrah.


The vineyard crew is busy dropping clusters to increase wine quality. We do this every year during véraison to keep tonnage at the goal each winemaker sets and to remove clusters that are less than perfect. This year was very fruitful, so even though it looks like there's a lot of fruit on the ground, we promise there's still enough on the vines to make plenty of delicious wine.


Veraison, or color change, is still moving right along. This block 2 Cabernet Sauvignon is really showing off its colors. We start harvest in a short 4-5 weeks.

Winners of Seattle Magazine's 11th Annual Washington Wine Awards

Congratulations to all the winners at this year's Seattle Magazine Wine Awards. We are especially proud of L'Ecole No. 41 who received best Merlot between $20-$40 and Pepper Bridge Winery who received best Merlot over $40. Both of these wines have quite a bit of Seven Hills Vineyard Merlot in them. We happen to think Seven Hills Vineyard grows the best Merlot around, and we also happen to still have some Merlot grapes available to purchase in 2016.

After back-to-back cool vintages in 2010 and 2011, Washington has seen a four-year run (2012–2015) in which each vintage has been warmer than the last.


It's another beautiful day in the vineyard. We are seeing véraison in the Cabernet and the wild sunflowers are in bloom.


Purple berries are popping up all over the vineyard. Check out our Syrah!



Beautiful view at Seven Hills Vineyard today.


Our first purple berries were spotted today in Sangiovese - about 5 days earlier than 2015 and three weeks ahead of "normal." Sangiovese is usually the first variety to hit veraison at Seven Hills Vineyard. This cluster appeared to be on a healthy plant and shoot, but we're still hoping we don't see more for another week.


There was an impressive sunset in the vineyard last night. This is the best way to end a hot summer day.


Just another gorgeous morning at Seven Hills Vineyard.


Winemakers! We still have a little Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon for sale for the 2016 vintage. The Merlot was planted in 1998 and is for sale by acreage contracts. The Cab was grafted over Merlot in 2011 and for sale by the ton. Please contact us if you wish to know more.


Bloom is here! We are seeing it a week before last year, which was a record early year. That puts 2016 bloom about 3 weeks ahead of our previous "normal." This is Cabernet Franc but we've also spotted bloom in Sangiovese and Carmenére.


The Walla Walls valley had a record warm month of April. Syrah and Cabernet Franc are already reaching the top wire of the trellising. Bloom will be just around the corner.


It's going to be a bountiful year. The best news of all, we've made it through the spring thus far without a hint of frost. Winemakers, we have a small amount of grapes for sale. If you are interested in making some Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon from Seven Hills Vineyard, please contact us.


The plants are loving this warm weather. This is our Grenache.


We are seeing bud break in all of our blocks. In order, here is Cab Franc, Sangiovese, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Merlot, and Cab Sauv.


The 2016 vintage is officially off and running. This is Cabernet Franc, but we've also seen bud break in a few other varieties.
