In 1996 Scott Greer (Owner/Winemaker) stumbled upon 76 acres of land in the Yakima Valley now known as Sheridan Vineyard. Little did he know that this would lead to an unexpected career change from finance to wine making. In 1997 he planted four acres and his first harvest came in 2000, which produced a Syrah and a red wine blend now known as L’Orage. Currently, the vineyard has been fully developed with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
As a self taught winemaker Scott has learned that all great wines start in the vineyard. This has lead to a focus on sustainable farming which has become the basis for a healthy and balanced vineyard. Scott knows that there is still much to learn in this rapidly evolving industry,but he feels that the future of the Yakima Valley and the Washington wine industry is unlimited and we truly have the ability to produce world class wines.
