Coyote Canyon Winery Story – Terrior with a Pedigree
Coyote Canon Winery was established in 2005 by Michael Andrews and opened for business in 2006. The goal was and continues to be to promote Coyote Canyon Vineyard, also known as Andrews Vineyard, while producing world class wines. Coyote Canyon Vineyard is in the heart of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. The winery exclusively uses grapes which are grown from skills that have been acquired from 44 years of farming and 23 years of grape growing experience. Mike’s passion for quality is than turned over to his Winemaker, Justin Michaud. Justin’s 18 years of experience aids in his magic of transforming CCV grapes into world class wines. Every step is carefully considered and acted upon to make our products the best of the best. These wines are drawing the attention of wine lovers local and worldwide. They have earned over 200 plus gold and double gold medals.
Our roots are deep in the Horse heaven Hills. 4 generations have farmed the ground once roamed by wild horses. Sheep, registered Herefords, followed by a diversity of row crops were grown where 1300 acres of grapes now grow, including 26 different varieties. Our H/H Estates Reserve labels are named for family members and bulls that share our family history.
In 2012 Mike Married artist Martha Nelson. Her artistic talents continue to take our winery to the next level. Our continued growth has brought the expansion of the tasting room to twice the size. Martha, using her design and painting experience developed while working for California entertainment studios, has used her talent to transform Coyote Canyon Tasting room into an experience you can’t miss. Her paintings on the walls share the history of the Horse Heaven Hills and Vineyard. New fun and exciting labels including Port style wine “Pour it Charlie,” and the new artist series wines.
