    Laura Lee Vineyard

    Laura Lee Vineyard is situated in the Royal Slope AVA of the Columbia Valley. The Royal Slope is a south-facing, magnificent slope in eastern Washington that was reportedly named by a pair of Scotsmen who climbed the Saddle Mountains and remarked on the slope’s majesty. In this part of the Columbia Valley, the cataclysmic Missoula Floods actually swirled below the elevation of these sites, making the soil series quite unique and relatively untouched.

Laura Lee Lawrence raised her family on this very location, which today is a sustainably farmed 62-acre site.
