“We’ve been actively using the images Pollen Systems
provides to identify both stressed and high vigor areas in our vineyard. Having
the Pollen team show up weekly gives us the ability to adjust irrigation or to
find outbreaks of pests and disease more rapidly throughout the season.”
-James Bukovinsky, Vineyard Manager

Located in Yakima Valley, Washington just south of Red Mountain. The 32-acre vineyard specializes in Pinot Gris, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition, Skyfall also contains 88 acres of varied fruit-bearing orchards. Aptly named Skyfall, after the boulders that are strewed amongst the vineyard and orchards, appearing as if they had fallen from the sky.
Corliss Estates Red Mountain Vineyard
Our first Red Mountain vineyard, purchased in 2007, was 33 acres originally planted in 1989 to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It is located on Sunset Road – a Red Mountain sweet spot that they refer to as ‘the tenderloin’. The fruit from this site has historically produced some of the finest wines from Washington State. Corliss farms these vineyards to exacting standards, practicing sustainable viticulture methods exclusively, in order to produce site-specific wines. The fruit is hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyards.
