Welcome to Queen Anne Winery’s blog

We hope this will be a helpful and informative place to find out everything you need and want to know regarding our wines and goings on. This is also a chance to add your own comments and responses regarding our wines and winery.

QA Winery celebrated it’s first release in October of 2007. We are a very small winery with a limited supply of red wines at this time only producing 140 cases total for our first year, with plans to expand as the winery becomes more, and more well known. We offer a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. We proudly announce we are sold out of the 2004 Merlot! In November of last year we released the 2005 Sangiovese. We plan on releasing the rest of the 2005 in early April.

Look for postings every quarter with happenings and exciting news from the winery. Come harvest we may post monthly since it is such an exciting time. The information covered will help you stay on top of our releases, where to find our wine, where to taste our wine and winery events, as well as ratings and awards.

Feel free to respond with comments, suggestions or questions.

Thanks for checking us out!

About our wines

2004, marks the winery’s first release.
The varieties:

Cabernet Sauvignon – Champoux and Chandler Reach cabernet sauvignon grapes combine together creating an aromatic bouquet of exuberantly rich flavors, hints of dry cherry and chocolate with lasting extended flavors.
Complements well with – rustic breads and bold flavorful cheese, steak or lamb, chocolate mouse’ or a dense rich dessert.

Syrah – Opens with abundant fruit combined with subtle citrus, lingering into a sweet chocolate mandarin finish. By creatively combining 2 different merlots and a tiny bit of cab, this wine extends and pleases.
Balance flavors with – pears and goat cheese, pheasant, rabbit, duck, or fruits and crème.

Merlot – An earthy natural beginning, transitions into intense berries off the vine fruitiness and ends in a balanced smooth silky tannic finish.
Pairs well with – light crackers with smooth cheeses such as, brie or crème la freche, simple grilled red meats or almond torte, vanilla cake or pastry.

2005, Queen Anne Winery adds a Sangiovese

Sangiovese – Super Tuscan, styled after the original Chianti without the added tannin. Opens with intense spice laced with black currant and a hint of huckleberry. A slow start finishes long, demonstrating the subtle complexity of the grape.

Couple flavors with: Tapas’, hearty red or white sauces or a winter stew, fresh fruit with crème’ la fresh or crème’.

Portteus Vineyards, located in Zillah Washington features well established vines in which some have been producing for up to 30 years, providing fruit for many of Washington State’s oldest and most prestigious wineries.

Champoux Vineyards, located in Alderdale south of Prosser, is a known and respected vineyard that year after year grows some of Washington’s most sought after grapes.
