Over 20,000 years ago, the Missoula Floods deposited sediment deep into the rich subsoils of the renowned Columbia Basin in Washington State. In each bottle of Subsoil, you discover a truly unique wine experience that showcases the distinct character and bright, ripe fruit from the Horse Heaven Hills.
