The grape, managed carefully, is the heart of any great wine, and Ryan Patrick Wines
showcase the vineyards and work with the nature of the grape. For example, if the grape is big, they make it big, and don’t try to tone it down.
Because every varietal excels in different terroir, Ryan Patrick Wines sources its wines from a variety of vineyards and AVAs, including Elephant Mountain Vineyard, Sagemoor Farms, Red Mountain AVA and Red Heaven Vineyard. This way, the winery can source the best grapes for, say, a ripe chardonnay, or the best Syrah grapes that need a warmer climate.
Ryan Patrick Wines is known for approachable wines with a distinctive edge. Jeremy works with hand-selected growers with sustainable practices to choose grapes that fit the quality and style that customers have come to love.
Vineyard sources: Red Heaven, Red Mountain, Bacchus/Sagemoor, Spanish Castle, Elephant Mountain, and Evergreen.
Ryan Patrick Vineyards is a pioneer winegrower in what is now Washington State’s newest American Viticultural Area (AVA), Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley. The state’s thirteenth AVA runs along a stretch of steep cliffs above the Columbia River and surrounds the town of Quincy, Washington. A combination of unique growing conditions including a cooler climate, a thin soil layer and vineyard elevations of 1,200 – 1,400 feet contribute to the area’s unique character. We also source premium fruit from our family of growers in other AVA’s throughout the Columbia Valley, allowing us access to the best varieties from the most suitable terroir. These partnerships provide winemaker, Jeremy Santo, quality fruit each vintage, consistent in style and structure.
Our Legacy – In 1951 Sid Flanagan began farming native land near Quincy, Washington as part of the Columbia Basin Irrigation Project. Forty years later in 1996, Sid’s son Terry, with wife Vivian, founded Ryan Patrick Vineyards naming the winery after their two sons, Ryan and Patrick.
