News from the Vineyard:

Conner Lee Vineyards in Othello, WA

Bill Conner and Rhoady Lee knew from the beginnning in the late 1980's that their mission and goal was clear: Be One of the Best Vineyards in Washington State.

Over the last quarter century, through multiple major winter events, spring frosts, fall frosts, and replanting more than fifty percent of the vineyard, Conner and Lee persevered. Wines produced from their vineyards by thirty or more Washington State wineries have clearly distinguished this vineyard as one of the “Top Ten Vineyards in Washington.”
