VINEYARDS, GARDENS, GROUNDS

The China Bend Estate was developed from raw undeveloped land beginning over 45 years ago. These virgin soils have never been contaminated in any way, and the proprietors have protected and maintained this pristine purity in the development of the estate. The Vineyards and Gardens have been certified organic for over 35 years. The rich living soil and the moderate climate on the banks of the Columbia River, and the full southern exposure combined with abundant water rights make China Bend perfect for grapes and gardens.

Vineyards: The six acres of vineyards are planted to rare, cold climate, red and white wine grape varieties, which originated in Swiss Alsatian region of Europe. The 30 year old vines produce deep, rich, spicy red wines and clean crisp whites. The vineyard soils on the banks of the Columbia are sandy and gravely; sloping gently towards the river with full southern exposure and an ideal site to grow vines of rich deep flavor. The wines are trellised and trained to maximize the quality of the wine. A permanent overhead sprinkler system irrigates the vineyards, gardens and grounds with abundant water from a pure and natural spring.

Gardens: For over 40 years the gardens at China Bend have been a source of beauty and inspiration as well as the delicious nutritious, organic food they produce. The gardens provide a healthy diet for the proprietors, gourmet dinners for guests and certified organic food products for the gift shop and local markets.

Grounds: The approximately 2 acres of grounds join the various elements of the estate with green lawns accented with flower beds and mature trees, all set in a park-like grove of 100 year old ponderosa pine trees. These beautiful grounds create an attraction for events, workshops, weddings, and parties.

Asking Price: This exceptional property is listed by the owner for $2.500,000. Reasonable offers will be considered.
