It is both passion and obsessive attention to detail that push Force Majeure to raise the standard for Washington winegrowing. Inspired by the vineyards of Bordeaux, Hermitage, Priorat, and Cote Rotie, we challenged existing viticultural practices and embarked on an ambitious plan to pioneer the very first vineyard on the steep, upper slopes of Red Mountain. Winemaker Todd Alexander (previously at Bryant Family) came on board in 2014 and today the wines show another level of purity and finesse, all while not sacrificing depth of fruit or texture. Trust me, this is a gorgeous wine you need to try.
