We stopped to taste wine this past May, and found the place busy, friendly, and mildly disorganized. The wine was excellent (we purchased several bottles). We would go back, and have enjoyed the wine we purchased.

Fantastic boutique winery on the Columbia River. I am especially fond of their Sade Red blend, the 2014 Chardonnay, 2013 Merlot & the 2013 Cab Sauv. Wonderful spot for a picnic!

Jacob Williams was our 3rd and final stop in WA this day. The tasting room feels like it is floating above the river. Nice wines but we were starting to get "tasted" out and opted for a glass of wine to share and enjoy the...More
