Cayuse Vineyards

Cayuse Vineyards owner and vigneron, Christophe Baron grew up among the vineyards and cellars of his family’s Champagne house, Baron Albert in France. Educated and trained in Burgundy, he first came to Washington State and the Walla Walla Valley in the 1990s as an intern. During a return visit in 1996, he discovered an area littered with basalt cobblestones and the idea for vineyards and winery focusing on creating world-class Rhône wines was born.Today, Cayuse owns five vineyards with 47 acres of land currently planted. From this land the winery currently creates 10 estate wines totaling 3000 cases.As the first and currently only Biodynamic estate winery in Washington, Cayuse focuses its efforts in the vineyards. The goal is to create wines that express unique individuality, personality and character.As we believe that wine is a food, we strive to produce balanced wines that can enhance a meal. Our wines are made with minimal intervention, as we try to protect the fruit, minerality and other aromas and flavors the vineyards give to the wines. Our wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
