Winemaker Andrew Wilson has his pick of the vineyard to craft Goose Ridge wines. Fermenting and aging wines in small lots from a handful of blocks carefully selected for their exceptional character and complexity is exactly what the Monsons had in mind for Goose Ridge when they founded the winery in 1999. The family has farmed in the Columbia Valley for almost five decades and is known for their commitment to quality. Goose Ridge Vineyard is built on that tradition.
