The Wine Cellar: Cathedral Ridge

Cathedral Ridge is honored to be a wine presence at the Lazy Triple Creek Ranch table. Our winery and vineyards are located in the stunning Columbia Gorge where outdoor activities are an essential part of life. We recognize the immense pleasurable connection existing between food and wine and put great care into crafting wines to pair exquisitely with wild game and fresh fish. The owner Robb Bell, is a dedicated sportsman himself, lending an added air of wisdom to the creation of wines balanced to unite optimally with hearty game.

We at Cathedral Ridge Winery aim to enhance your dining experience by delivering wines round and full on your palate with deep flavor nuances bursting throughout. Our bold reds stand up to banter with rich boar, while our supple whites tantalize with a zest of crispness to dance with delicate trout. The rich landscape from which our vines grow imbibe unique flavors of tart apple, smooth apricot, luscious cherry, bright blackberry and spicy earth.

We hold in high regard the notion of terroir and its essential presence in forging superb wines. In the purest essence, terroir is a wines representation of "a sense of place". It is expressed through innate complexities born into each bottle as a result of diverse climatic energies converging to create an intimate wine experience. As sportsmen you will recognize this idea is intrinsic to your passion for the environment that provides an abundance of challenges and rewards as part of each hunt. No two days, locations or birds are the same, hence each hunt bestows individual terroir and unparalleled adventure.

We have taken great care in selecting the following wines for your exploration and enjoyment. Our 2007 Pinot Noir, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006 Syrah, 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot Blend and 2007 Chardonnay. These wines have received strong recognition from customers and judges alike. May the thrill of the hunt fill your days and may camaraderie be born over a glass of wine each evening.

Thank you for embracing Cathedral Ridge Winery's nectar of the Gods.

Cheers, Cathedral Ridge Winery
