Destiny Ridge Vineyard

We are fortunate to have our own estate vineyard, Destiny Ridge, which allows our winemaker, Jarrod L. Boyle —along with Mother Nature—complete control of fruit quality from bud to bottle. Our belief, a constant for all great wines around the world, is that quality starts in the vineyard.

Through attentive viticulture management, balanced crop levels, gentle hand-harvesting and processing of grapes, and passionate winemaking, we produce consistent quality in every bottle. Our 267 planted acre estate vineyard is located high on the bluffs overlooking the majestic Columbia River, in the highly recognized Horse Heaven Hills Appellation. It is here, high on the dominate ridge, that our grapes thrive in the soils and climatic conditions of the Horse Heaven Hills.

Fruit not used to craft Alexandria Nicole Cellars wines is sold to other wineries under contract. We have 23 varietals planted and here are just a few:

Riesling Merlot Grenache
Viognier Malbec Lemberger
Sauvignon Blanc Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon
Roussanne Mourvèdre Cabernet Franc
Marsanne Syrah Petit Verdot
