Mercer Wine Estates of Eastern Washington State

Mercer Wine Estates of Eastern Washington has an agricultural history that dates back to the turn of the century beginning with sheep herding in the early 1900s. Some forty years later cattle, and dryland wheat production is introduced to support the growth and sustainability of Mercer Ranches. A decade later with irrigation introduced vineyards and other crops found their natural foothold at Mercer. Four short years later in 1972, the first family of the land in Washington, Don and Linda Mercer become the founding wine grape growers in the Horse Heaven Hills. The Cabernet Sauvignon they planted in Block 1 would later become the highly acclaimed Champoux Vineyard. In 2005, the Mercers started making Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with their on site tasting room opening in 2009. In 2011, Don and Linda Mercer received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers. Mercer Wine 3100 Lee Road Prosser, Washington 99350.
