Welcome New Member Passion Vineyards

I am pleased to welcome our newest member, Passion Vineyards, to the FWWS. Here is some information on them:

Since 2000, Winemaker Chuck Laird has been pursuing his passion, and refining his technique, until he developed the perfect bottle of passion....... disguised as wine.

Officially started in 2006, Chuck and his crew crushed and pressed 6 tons of grapes at the Issaquah winery this year, including: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. All the grapes are grown in the southeastern part of Washington state, on the hills above Benton City. With a good relationship with the grower, Chuck is able to help manage the growing process of the grapes along with Scott, from deciding on the amount of canopy left over the fruit, to the proper picking time when the brix levels are perfect.

Passion Vineyards is a small, "boutique" winery, producing around 600 cases of different varietals every year. We hope to grow every year and with your support, we will! We hope you'll come visit, try our wines and enjoy a glass of Passion with us!


Welcome to the org!
