Located just outside of Zillah Washington, in the Yakima Valley, Sheridan soils consist of mostly of sandy silt loam with a hard pan underlay anywhere from 6 to 30 inches. Elevation runs from 1120 to 1220 ft.. Since we are the hilltop we have slope in all four directions with our late ripening varietals planted on the southern and western slopes while early ripening are planted to the northern slopes. With the higher elevation our daytime temperatures are warmer and night time cooler than the vineyard around us (especially during spring and fall). The shallow soils help naturally moderate both yield and canopy, all vines are trained to VSP. We place emphasis on sustainable agricultural practices for long term health of both the soils and vines as well as all beneficial insect and other natural predators (hawks, owls, kestrels and coyotes).
