Galitzine Vineyard, West Richland, WA located in the small Red Mountain AVA. Named in honor of our proud Russian heritage, this family-owned vineyard has the original spelling of the family name.
Galitzine Vineyard is the source of our vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignon showcasing the incredible depth, richness and consistency that can be grown in the Red Mountain AVA. This 17 acre, high density vineyard (2074 plants per acre) was planted in 2001 and 2002 entirely with Clone 8 Cabernet Sauvignon on windblown Hezel over Warden soils. These deep sandy loam soils are ideal for root development and deficit irrigation, leading to excellent vineyard uniformity. Since its inception, the Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has averaged an incredibly high 97.18 points from the Wine Advocate over its first 12 vintages and its first 100 point rating in the 2014 vintage.
