Market Vineyards is a high-end boutique Washington winery with tasting rooms in Richland and Woodinville. We take pride in offering remarkable wines created with hand-picked fruit sourced from premiere vineyards in the Columbia Valley and Red Mountain growing regions. Our attention to detail and premium quality is noticed not only in the fruit chosen, but also in the artistic abilities in the cellar. Custom French oak and American oak barrels are hand-selected to beautifully complement each vintage produced. Our commitment to maintaining the highest standard is reflected by our decision to choose one of Washington State's industry leaders, Charlie Hoppes, as our winemaker.

We recently introduced several of our 2013 vintages, which includes the 2013 Acquisition Cabernet Sauvignon featuring Red Mountain fruit, the 2013 Benchmark Merlot, and our 2013 Merval Malbec featuring 100% Red Mountain fruit. Each of these wines has its own distinct and remarkable characteristics that represent the outstanding 2013 growing season.

This Alpha leverages our great tradition of Merlots with 100% Red Mountain fruit hand-picked from the famed Hightower Vineyard.
