Ready to take a journey through the history of Washington wine? The Mercer family has been homesteading in the Horse Heaven Hills before Washington was a state. In 1972 Don and Linda Mercer became the founding grape growers in the Horse Heaven Hills. In fact their original Cabernet block is now the highly acclaimed Champoux Vineyards. In 2005 Mercer began making their own wine and for over a decade has been making award winning and highly recognized wine. Wine Press Northwest gave them their highest honor in 2016 with the coveted “Winery of the Year” Award.
