About Spring Valley Vineyard
The vineyards of Spring Valley Vineyard are tucked away in the middle of the golden, rolling wheat fields of the Walla Walla Valley in Washington state. All of the fruit is exclusively estate-grown and tended to carefully by winemaker Serge Leville and the Derby family, founders of the winery and who still grow wheat on the hills that surround the vineyards. The outcome of this care produces remarkable wines reflective of their unique heritage and terroir. www.springvalleyvineyard.com
