Amos Rome Vineyards is currently growing seven varietals across two properties in Manson, Washington.
Amos Rome Vineyards
Growing Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Chardonnay, amos rome vineyards consists of two primary blocks: the six acre Block '98 and the seven acre Block '14. This property is also where you will find the Amos Rome Vineyard winery and tasting room.
The six acre Block '98, so named because it was planted in 1998, is essentially a "founders" block since 1998 was the first year commercial grapes were planted in the Lake Chelan Valley in modern times. Block '98 contains one and one-half acres of Merlot, two and one-half acres of Pinot Noir, one acre of Cabernet Franc and one acre of Chardonnay.
The seven acre Block '14, planted in 2014, contains three acres of Merlot, two acres of Cabernet Franc and two acres of Malbec.
