Nearly fifty years ago the Mercer family planted the first wine grapes in the Columbia Valley’s Horse Heaven Hills, on land our great-grandfather settled in 1886. We strive to maintain Willis Mercer’s independent spirit in our wines, grown predominantly from these original vineyards – tended by us, made by us.
2016 Sharp Sisters Red Blend
This blend shows a beautiful nose of blackberry preserves and raspberry jam with notes of sage and sweet burnt sugar. The ripe fruit combined with sleek tannin structure create a wine that is broad and powerful yet elegant. The ripe flavors in the mouth lead into a soft, lingering finish with a touch of bright acidity that leaves you wanting more.
2018 Georgetown White Blend
Aromas of grapefruit and bright lime zest are abundant on the nose, finishing with honesuckle and passionfruit. The racy acidity from the Sauvignon blanc carries through the midpalate, rounding out with the savory tropical notes from the Viognier.
2016 Small Lot Dry Riesling
We fermented and aged 10% of this wine on the skins, creating a wine with amazing aromas and texture. The complexity of this wine greets you in layers. Fresh fruit is first with lychee, white peach, and orange blossom followed by the warmth of honey and beeswax. Steely minerality and a core of acid focuses the fruit. On the palate, the wine has mouthwatering acidity and fresh fruit. The flavors in the palate mirror the aromas and linger nicely on the finish.
2016 Small Lot Grenache
Notes of cranberry and strawberry marry beautifully with undertones of warm baking spices. Powdery tannin provide great texture and body, leading into a lengthy velvety finish.
Mercer Bros 2017 Merlot
Notes of candied walnuts, ripe raspberry jam, plum, and dried cranberries mingle with sweet coconut and vanilla. In the palate, the fruit is mocha and blueberries. This wine has a structural core of powdery tannins that are lifted with a touch of acidity. This big, bold Merlot will pair well with many dishes and has amazing aging potential.
Mercer Bros 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine gives aromas of ripe red fruit, blackberry pie, dried cranberries with hints of brown sugar and warm baking spices. Powdery tannins lend structure to this wine, while maintaining elegance and ending in a long lingering finish.

Mercer Bros 2017 Edge of Heaven Red Blend
As is very characteristic of wines from the Horse Heaven Hills appellation, this wine exhibits notes of ripe red cherries with a bright, lively mouthfeel that is balanced by sweet, dusty tannins. A veil of smoky char brings warmth.
Mercer Bros 2018 Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay opens with notes of fresh pear, caramel apple, and honeydew melon surrounded by notes of toasted marshmallow and vanilla cream. A core of acidity keeps the wine fresh on the palate to help balance its rich and creamy midpalate.
