2017 Founder's Red Blend
Our second annual Founder’s White blend lays tribute to the original Rio Vista along the Columbia River and our horse-related historical location. Prior to Rio Vista Wines, in the 60s and 70s, tucked away amongst largely barren land, sat a family ranch and homestead. This riverside area was a notable local mecca for harness racing and training of standard bred horses. Upon entering the property, note the remaining horse barns and pump handle sign welcoming youto “Rio Vista Stables.” Looking to the south, a barely-discernible remnant of an oval track can be seen extending from vineyard to the cherry orchard. Rio Vista Stables laid the foundation that has allowed Rio Vista Wines into existence. As you enjoy our Founders' Blend, perhaps you can imagine yourself cheering with the local fans of harness racing at Rio Vista. Limited case production: Blended with 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc, this round and robust red is sure to tantalize your taste buds.
