Double Canyon To Locate Winemaking Hub In West Richland, Washington

07/07/2016
Double Canyon, a wine brand focused on producing Cabernet Sauvignon, will soon begin construction on its new winemaking facility in West Richland, Washington.

The company plans to break ground in mid-August for the new 47,000-square-foot West Richland facility. Anticipated to be complete by August 2017, the initial production capacity will be approximately 50,000 cases, with the opportunity to grow significantly further, according to company officials.

In addition to being situated close to Horse Heaven Hills, the winemaking facility is central to amenities of the greater Tri Cities area and near Washington State University's new wine research facility. Within a year, Double Canyon will transition all winemaking activities in-house to focus on the production of wines that reflect this unique region.

"We are committed to making best-in-class Washington Cabernet, anchored by our estate vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. The construction of this new winemaking facility will allow us to control all aspects of winemaking," said Will Beightol, General Manager/Winegrower for Double Canyon.

"Crimson Wine Group is committed to developing our Northwest wine portfolio," said Crimson Wine Group President/CEO Patrick DeLong. "Having our own winery will allow an even higher focus on quality and provide a footprint for growth in Washington State."

Named for the two ravines that run through it, Double Canyon Vineyard was established in 2007 with the goal of creating high quality wines to express the unique character of the Horse Heaven Hills.
