The Vineyard

Taking viticulture in Washington to new heights. Pushing the limits of Red Mountain.

The views from the top of Cam Myhrvold’s majestic Red Mountain property inspire one to dream big. What is possible? In vineyard manager Ryan Johnson, Cam has found a willing partner - ready to explore the full potential of the site. Ryan spent 15 months researching the 360-acre site and learning the land, before planting a single vine.

The top of the property reaches over 1,200 feet of elevation. As a result, the highest vineyard sites feature fractured basalt lava barely covered by a skiff of windblown soil, bringing to mind the rocky growing regions of Côte Rôtie or Priorat.

As of 2023, 37 acres have been planted. LIMINAL has exclusive access to many of the vineyard’s diverse blocks. Varieties include Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Everything we’ve done in the vineyard has been at an obsessive level of detail. Because we are pioneering something new in developing the ridgeline, we’ve had the freedom to be creative and innovative. Of course, there is some risk, but the risk is tethered by our extensive experience and rooted in our knowledge of the land.
