Entiat grape growing reaches new heights

When a stray grapevine from one of our grape arbors decided to climb onto an adjoining juniper tree a few years ago, I decided to honor its lofty ambition. 

Now this Glenora grapevine, a native American variety, has risen to about 75 feet tall, nearly reaching the very top of the tree.

We don’t make wine from these dark red grapes, but use them instead for eating, mostly in fruit salads and desserts. 

But other than the grapes on the arbor itself, I leave the rest of them for our feathered friends, hoping they will ignore the ones within our reach.

To view our “Jack and the Grapevine,” visit Snowgrass Winery in the Entiat Valley, located just 5.5 miles west of Highway 97A on the Entiat River Road. 

We are open by appointment. Contact us at snowgrass@ nwi.net, www.snowgrasswines.com or call 509-784-5101. 

We hope our grapes (and wines) will meet your highest expectations. 

Alan Moen and Susan Kidd are co-owners of Snowgrass Winery in the Entiat Valley, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
