Badger Mountain Wines
Visionary and life-long farmer Bill Powers planted Badger Mountain Vineyard with his son Greg in 1982. Just six years later, well-before the word organic became trendy and then universal, Bill transitioned his 80-acre estate to organic viticulture and in 1990 Badger Mountain Vineyard became the first Certified Organic winegrape vineyard in Washington State. Using a palette of diverse organic grapes, winemaker Jose Mendoza creates a wide array of classic varietal wines with no sulfites added. Jose's imaginative blends result in fresh and provocative wines ~ each with a distinct heady balance of fruit, floral, spice, and earth.
