Orenda is the passion project (what family run winery isn’t though really!) of young couple Xander and Samantha. Sourcing from a handful of carefully selected high elevation vineyards throughout Washington’s Columbia Valley, winemaker Samantha is able to achieve something few are able to in WA -- balance. If that weren’t enough to convince you, highly respected Erika Orr is consulting winemaker; with two women at the helm, let’s spread the word!
Washington Cab Sauv is fruitier than Bordeaux, but Orenda straddles the two worlds well.
