Illahe Vineyards

The winery explains that ILLAHE, pronouned “Ill-Uh-Hee,” is Chinook jargon for “place,” “earth,” or “soil.” The winery aims to make wine “as naturally as possible, from soil to bottle.” The wines are small-lot, sustainably grown, dry-farmed, hand-picked, horse-drawn, basket-pressed, and unfiltered. The winery is solar-powered, LIVE (low-input viticulture & enology) certified, and salmon-safe. As admirable as their farming practice is, it is the quality of the wines that brings the payoff for all of that hard work. These Pinot Noir and dry white wines offer pure & distinctive varietal character and authentic, delicious expression of a sense of place.
