The Pacific Northwest is home to incredible scenic landscapes and stunning views complete with dense forests and majestic mountain ranges. Scattered among the gorgeous countryside are some incredible vineyards and wineries, one of which is Domaine Pouillon Winery. Located less than an hour away from Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins through a scenic drive next to the Columbia River, this winery features elegant, artisan wines handmade within Washington State. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine at this incredible family-run winery.
The owners of Domaine Pouillon Winery, Juliet and Alexis Pouillon, met in 2005. Their similar interest in creating wines with old-world flair has progressed their wine-making hobby into the incredible business it is today. They built their own paradise near the bank of the Columbia River in 2007 and began to experiment with the harvest and crushing of grapes. The couple works together to create incredible small batches of wines. Alexis focuses on the cultivation of the grapes and keeps a close connection with them during their growing process. He and his wife collaborate on the wines and customer experience together every day for constant improvement.
As soon as you step foot onto Domaine Pouillon Winery, you can tell that the vineyard is a product of expert care. The tasting room is beautiful and luxurious, yet warm and comfortable. Tastings are offered on the weekends from 12-7, or by appointment. After you try a variety of wines created from their locally harvested grapes, make sure to visit the patio. Sit and relax on the porch swing underneath a lovely pergola as you look out over the gorgeous hillside.
When you try Domaine Pouillon Winery wines, you are in for a treat. There are no chemical sprays used in the vineyard. Instead, the vignerons pay close attention to their crop and use sustainable practices. The grapes are hand-picked in small batches at their ideal ripeness and acquire a unique flavor from their organic environment.
When choosing which wines to try, you have to test the one that started it all: Black Dot. This wine was invented back in 2004 through some experimental blending. They discovered the perfect blend, then no one can remember which grapes were used! Thus, the ever-changing Black Dot was invented with different grape varieties in each batch. Another popular option is Domaine Pouillon Katydid with vanilla and blackberry flavors and a plum and ground white pepper finish.
After a few glasses of wine at Domaine Pouillon Winery, retreat to your private cabin at Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins.
