The Vineyard

The Scene

Garnier Vineyards overlooks the scenic Columbia River from the historic, 300+ acre Mayerdale Estate near Mosier, Oregon. Ours is one of more than 40 vineyards in the Columbia River Gorge area. Grape growers, vintners, and wine aficionados [or experts] prize the area’s fertile soil, distinct fruit-bearing weather, and unique micro-climates.

The Soils

Garnier Vineyards’ soil is sandy with a light clay content, imparting a perfect mix of nutrients for growing grapes and other fruit. The vineyard’s proximity to the Columbia River and low elevation provide valuable added heat-units during the growing season and frost protection during winter.
