an imitation of no one

bold and determined  |  Undeniably complex


Located in the Columbia Valley AVA, the Wahluke Slope AVA produces some of the best Washington wines.  LUKE is no exception.

I heard stories about him for years, saw him in the flesh a few times, and spoke to him only once.  The true depth of a man’s character is often unknowable, but even one conversation was enough to convince me that Luke was an imitation of no one. He revealed himself slowly, like a freed wind emerging  from the shadow of a mountain.  Seemingly ordinary at first, but undeniably complex. Bold and determined, but unabashedly generous.
