A Farming Family
While we’ve been farming on Red Mountain, the mountain has been shaping us. For three generations we’ve called this dusty swath of sagebrush and sunshine home, and our unique approach helps ensure we’ll be here for generations to come. Our experience and longevity puts us in a position to supply and advise many regional wineries, as this mountain of ours continues to inspire the world.
Where the heart is
Our vineyard Philosophy
This is my dad. We get to see each other at work every day. It’s more than a job to us; it’s a way of life. We view Kiona as a lifestyle, not a money-making machine. We want Kiona Vineyards and Winery to be around in 100 years, which means making decisions with an eye towards longevity rather than short-term profits. Ultimately this allows us to focus on what matters to us: farming, family, and making amazing wine.
“It’s not a Kiona Party until the graduated cylinders come out”
— JJ Williams
Why ‘Estate-grown’ matters to us (and why it should to you, too)
Simply put, we own what we grow. There are no third party banks or outside investors influencing our decisions-we take ownership of our product from the first berry to the finished bottle. Kiona exists because we made it, meaning our wine carries a pure-bred pedigree that spans generations and speaks volumes.
Leaders in the region
When you’ve been around a long time you learn a few things.
Vineyard sourcing is perhaps the single most important decision that goes into building a quality wine, winery, brand, and reputation, and we’re honored and humbled that more than 60 of the best wineries in the Pacific Northwest buy their grapes from us. We relish the opportunity to share the best of Red Mountain with our peers in the industry and to provide our knowledge, follow-through, expertise, and service.
If you have a favorite bottle of Washington wine, check the label - it might just be grown by us.
We don’t do it for the banks, we do it so one day she can make it her own.
