Tuckers are one of Washingtons oldest grape-growing families.
To quote Cliff Tucker from the 1980's:"Our best wines were usually Rieslings, Sauternes, and a Chateaux Rouge which was semi-sweet,Cliff suggests. We had fermenters on the top floor and the winery was built on the side of the hill. He recalled seeing Large California tank trucks rolling up regularly in the 1950s. The winery still stands on U.S. Grape property.
Current plantings of grapes include Viognier, Pinot Gris, Sangiovese, Muscat Blanc, Tinta Cao and Gewurztraminer. The Tucker family operates the winery which is open daily from 10 to 5.
