Columbia Valley: Encompassing nearly half of the state, the Columbia Valley AVA embodies
the depth and diversity of Washington winegrowing, and is widely
regarded as the home to North America's greatest Riesling
vineyards. Casey McClellan works with approximately 12 top
vineyards in five of the AVA's sub-appellations (Yakima Valley, Red
Mountain, Wahluke Slope,
Snipes Mountain and Walla Walla Valley), with sites that encompass a
range of elevations, microclimates and soils. Working with this
expansive palette of fruit, the Columbia Valley wines have earned a reputation for their layered appeal and
exceptional value. True Washington State wines, they offer excellent
fruit expression and elegant acid balance.
Red Mountain: In 1989, Seven Hills Winery began looking for distinctive vineyards in microclimates
outside the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The exploration led to Klipsun Vineyard on the slopes of Red Mountain, and later to the renowned old vines of Ciel du Cheval.
In fact, Casey's commitment to Red Mountain predates its designation as a
unique appellation by a dozen years. With warmer temperatures, southwest
facings and shallow soils, the grand cru-caliber vineyards of Red
Mountain offer a singularly powerful expression of Washington
winegrowing, consistently producing some of the most intense fruit in the Seven Hills portfolio.
