The story: For over 125 years, the Mercers have been stewards of the same land in Washington’s Horse Heaven Hills. They got our start in livestock and row crops, and in 1972, they planted the first wine grapes in the acclaimed Horse Heaven Hills AVA. Now, their diversified operations span a 12,000 acre farm along the Columbia River. At Mercer Ranches, they consider themselves agriculturalists. More than viticulturists or farmers, agriculturalists are modern experts in the field of agriculture. They are stewards of our land, caring for and enhancing its’ environmental and social value, always striving to provide a life more abundant for all. Utilizing all available knowledge and technology, they create harmony in the ecosystem of our farm, and produce wines that demonstrate the unique terroir of the Horse Heaven Hills with a sense of balance.
