McKinley Springs Winery celebrates Crushing It For 15 Years

October 14, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm


PROSSER, Wash. — McKinley Springs Winery, stemming from 70 years of farming and 37 years of wine grape growing in the Horse Heaven Hills, will stage its “Crushing It For 15 Years” celebration on Saturday, Oct. 14 at the McKinley Springs Winery tasting room in the Winemakers Loft in Prosser, Wash.

As a 100 percent estate-focused winery, McKinley Springs Winery sources fruit for their 10+single-varietal and blended wines from the 2,700+-acre, eponymously named vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills American Viticultural Area.

“The majority of the McKinley Springs Vineyard is located on family land that was a gunning range facility for aerial training in World War II,” said Doug Rowell, owner/winemaker of McKinley Springs Winery, who crafted the Bombing Range white and red wine series as an homage to the diverse history of the Andrews family land in the Horse Heaven Hills.

Rowell established McKinley Springs Winery in 2002 with his wife, Sandy Rowell (neé Andrews), Sandy Rowell’s brothers, Rob and Scott Andrews, and Scott Andrew’s son, Dan Andrews, and their respective spouses. Rowell said the “Crushing It For 15 Years” celebration “represents much more than 15 years of hard work. It is a celebration of four generations of farming in the Horse Heaven Hills of southeastern Washington state.”

The “Crushing It For 15 Years” event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will coincide with Wine Yakima Valley’s Catch The Crush weekend. The celebration will feature live music, hearty bites via a gourmet food truck, and a tasting of McKinley Springs Winery Estate wines.

There is a $5 entry fee at the door, waived for McKinley Springs Winery wine club members. Children accompanied by adults 21+ are welcome to attend.
