The Winemaking

Stylistic explorations in new terroir. Go where the vines lead us.

The team behind Avennia has created Liminal, focused entirely on the WeatherEye vineyard. For fermentation and aging strategies, they are challenging themselves to explore both traditional and modern methods, to best express the fruit from this unique vineyard. In the end, it’s the site itself that will guide the style of the wines, with the winemaking honoring and supporting this terroir. The possibilities are extremely exciting. The first harvest for Liminal was in 2018, with the wine scheduled for release in early 2021.

Winemakers have shown that Washington can produce world-class wines. This is a chance to ask ourselves – what’s the new frontier for Washington wine? It’s exciting to think this project can be a step in that direction.
