Two Blondes Vineyard
Zillah, Washington State
Andrew Will Winery’s estate vineyard, Two Blondes, is located in Zillah Washington, just outside Yakima. The vineyard is named for Chris Camarda’s late wife, Annie, who was a 6’2” blonde, and their partner in the vineyard, Bill Fleckenstein’s wife, Melody, who is also blonde. Two Blondes Vineyard was planted in 2000 with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.
The soils are a mix of Harwood – Burke – Wiehl series. They are silty loams formed in a silty loess eolian mantle over a lime-silica-cemented durpan. The vines are trained on bi-lateral cordons and the rows are mostly spaced at 5X8 and run due north and south.
Vineyard Manager Chris Hoon, manages 30 planted acres of vines on Two Blondes Vineyard in the Yakima Valley AVA of Washington State.
