Among the Giants wine collection celebrates the Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard and newly designated AVA Goose Gap, where “X” marks the spot. The perfect elevation and soils intersect to produce these remarkable wines. When the Monson family decided to plant grapes on this sun-drenched hill adjacent to Red Mountain, they did so under the guidance of Dr. Walter Clore, considered by many to be the “father” of the Washington wine industry. Dr. Clore was impressed by the site’s gentle, south-facing slope and the growing area’s warm temperatures. He encouraged us to plant vineyard rows north-to-south to maximize sun exposure, and he also advised us to plant the site in small blocks to facilitate estate-grown wines managed for low yields through careful pruning and thinning practices. As a result of the vineyard’s attention to detail, grapes ripen evenly and the wines are consistently ripe, rich, and fruit-forward. Our Among the Giants Chardonnay and Merlot from the Goose Gap appellation are shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best in Washington. They are Among the Giants.
