Syncline Winery

Syncline Wine Cellars is located along the Columbia River in southern Washington State. The location, in the eastern Columbia River Gorge, is unique place for growing wine grapes. The estate vineyard, Steep Creek Ranch, is located on a southern slope, on the very eastern edge of the new Columbia Gorge AVA. Directly west of the vineyard and winery is a series of 300-foot cliffs rising up into the surrounding mountains straight out of the Columbia River. Locally known as the “Coyote Wall Syncline” and to geologists as the “Bingen Syncline,” this dramatic feature gives the winery its name. It is at this point that the rainy western Columbia Gorge transitions to the semi-arid eastern Gorge.

We have built a winery and planted estate vineyards based on the simple designs and demands of a wine-growing family with the intention behind every decision, that our farm will become a multi-generation estate. We also work with a select group of grower-partners who collaborate with us to deliver expressive and exemplary grapes. As members of the community, we believe in providing meaningful employment that is healthy and rewarding.

Syncline Wine Cellars celebrates expressive Washington Wines with character, identity, and a connection to the land. James Mantone was awarded the 2018 Washington Winemaker of the Year.
