Memaloose Wines bring you the bright flavors of the Columbia Gorge AVA.
Grown and produced in a National Scenic Area by the McCormick Family, these wines are grown to complement food. Estate vineyard sites lie on both the Washington and Oregon slopes of the Columbia River, at various elevations and in distinct micro-climates spread throughout this exciting, young AVA. Our spectacular tasting room is located next to the Klickitat River bridge, at the corner of the Klickitat and Columbia Rivers in Lyle, Washington. Join us at the Tasting Room!
The Place: Columbia River Gorge AppellationShaped by cataclysmic floods and relentless winds, the Columbia Gorge Appellation
(click to view video) is more than a visual treasure. It is a
collection of microclimates with rich volcanic soils, capable of growing
a mind-numbing array of grape varieties — producing well balanced,
structured wines, blessed with bright acidity.
The McCormick FamilyA Father and Son, supported by other family members, all on a quest to uncover the true potential of this young AVA. We farm our five vineyards (McCormick Family Vineyards and Clastic Fruit) and control every step of the winemaking miracle.
The Love of FoodFood and wine are at the center of our family's life. Because of our backgrounds, we view wine as an integral part of the food experience — we will only produce wines that complement food…lighter alcohol and oak influence, without sweetness or overextraction. This means that our wine is quite different from the typical Washington State wine.
