Announcing the new 2017 Syrah, Seven Hills Vineyard, Walla Walla Valley. Our first release for 2020 will be available at our tasting room in the Spokane Valley Saturday, February 1st, from 12-5pm. This Syrah from Seven Hills has plenty of dark fruit with abundant spice and nice fine tannins. Whereas our previous two releases of Syrah were huge, based on raw power and the ability to age for a decade or more, this wine is amiable, more approachable even now while it is young, dense with flavor, with more upfront berries and wild cherries, it is elegant and refined. Youthful and spirited, it will continue to develop as it gains maturity, but you can drink now or hold in your cellar for years to come. Contact Nichole our tasting room manager for more information on how you can get some of this wonderful wine while supplies last. Members, your allocations will be ready for pick-up Saturday, February 1st . NicholeCrosby@NodlandCellars.com See MoreSee Less

#TBT: Arbor Crest in 1924 Making wine is our passion, but we also love being able to share our historic headquarters with the community. Royal Newton Riblet established this Spokane landmark in 1924. An inventor and mechanical innovator, Riblet not only developed a variety of patented devices, including a square-wheel tractor, pattern sprinkler system and mechanical parking garage, he was also the chief engineer and designer of his beautiful home and estate. At the time of its construction in the early 1920s, it was among the most “wired” homes in the nation! Visitors to the Estate were welcomed through an arched basalt Gatehouse that led to the three-story Florentine-style mansion. Riblet's imaginative landscape architecture and grounds include a life-size checkerboard, four acres of terraced gardens, a unique pool carved into the basalt, an enclosed croquet court, and the "Eagle's Nest," a red-roofed stone gazebo with an epic view. It was just as special back then as it is for visitors now. ❤️ See MoreSee Less
