About This Wine
The Columbia River Gorge stands as a prominent reminder of the last ice age.
Carved out by the great Missoula floods, past catalytic events define the rich, unique soil types of what today is known as the Columbia Valley region in Washington state. Lying in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountain range, the area’s vineyards contain diverse sediments optimal for viticulture.
Situated below the floodwaters, the vineyards are planted in soils of loess (sand and silt), gravel, slack water sediment and basalt, forming well-drained bedrock — absolutely ideal for grape growing. This is the home Big DeVine.
At Big DeVine, the winemaking team targets this terrain to create a stellar lineup of plush Washington wines — using modern techniques in the cellar to craft wines that showcase the history of the region. The 2014 Big DeVine Cabernet Sauvignon is a delicious example: a medium-bodied Cab with enticing aromas and flavors.
