Ginkgo Forest wines are made from hand-harvested grapes in estate-grown vineyards, expertly tended on the Wahluke Slope. This famed appellation surveys the mighty Columbia River and has perfect grape-growing conditions with desert heat and meager soils. Millions of years ago, the area was wet and humid with swamps and shallow lakes surrounded by verdant forests. Thousands of petrified trees were discovered here in the 1950s with the ginkgo being the most rare. This petrified forest lies atop the Saddle Mountain range overlooking Ginkgo Forest Winery. Inspired by the trees that once grew in abundance here, Ginkgo Forest wines are crafted with loving care and attention to make them distinctive and long-lived like the winery’s namesake tree.
