We are thrilled to announce that we have been named Compass Wines' 2018 Winery of the Year!

"I have been selling Tim and Kelly’s wines since the very first vintage, in the late 1990’s, before this shop was even here. They make this list just about every year, and had three wines nominated this time, so it is a no-brainer to put them to the head of the class for 2018. Bravo to one of the pioneers of Red Mountain and master of Merlot!"

-Doug Charles

Our first ever End of Summer Barbecue was a big success! With Porter's Real Barbecue, the Skyler Mendell Quartet, a beautiful summer sunset, and plenty of wine, we couldn't have asked for a better Labor Day weekend party. Thank you to everyone who came out to the winery and helped celebrate the end of summer with us!

Reviewing our newest release, The Wine Advocate wrote, "Revealing aromas of dark fruit, pungent cracked pepper, and black olive, the 2015 Murray Syrah is supple, juicy, and medium-bodied, with considerable flavor and character."

Internationally acclaimed wine critic James Suckling recently conducted a tasting of Washington State wines, including 5 Hightower and 1 Murray wine. He seems to have liked what he saw (or rather, tasted):

  • 2014 Hightower Reserve           93 Points
  • 2015 Hightower Petit Verdot      92 Points
  • 2015 Hightower Malbec             90 Points
  • 2014 Hightower Cab Sauv         91 Points 

The four wines above were recent wine club releases. We are sold out of the Reserve and the Malbec, but do have some Cabernet and a couple cases of the Petit Verdot left.
