"At Port Townsend Vineyards, we use biodynamic farming methods and organic principles: hand harvesting, no chemicals, and natural pest control. Together, and in the spirit of the generations to come, we can help make a difference; choices matter. With future generations of young and old in mind, our world is impacted by the decisions we make today." - Ben Thomas
MORE ABOUT PORT TOWNSEND VINEYARDS:
The vineyard is located in a part of Port Townsend known historically as Portuguese Hill. Planted in 2015 on an original homestead site and former cattle ranch, Port Townsend Vineyards had its first harvest in October 2017. The Vineyard on Portuguese Hill reflects our mission to keep things natural, local and community-oriented. Grape varieties grown in the 11.5-acre vineyard have been carefully selected to produce a collection of still wines that pair well with local shellfish and produce. They include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Siegerrebe, Madeleine Angevine, Auxerrois, Ortega, Rondo, Garanoir, Muscat of Norway and Iskorka.
This vineyard was carefully planned to showcase the unique grape varieties that thrive in this geography and coastal climate. We use exclusively hand-harvesting techniques and care for the vines with no use of pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides. When you visit, you may see a small herd of Soay Sheep happily working the vineyard as natural weed-eating and fertilizing “machines.”
We will have our full array of locally-made wine available for purchase at the Winery and at our downtown location, "Vintage." Our Portuguese Hill Estate wine: Madeleine Angevine, Pinot Noir, and Siegerrebe will also be available.
