Daughters & Sons Winery
Daughters & Sons Winery is the creation of Riley Miller, owner/winemaker at Sonder Wines, and Daniel Luzzo, a long-time private label wine broker. Their goal was to make high-quality wine that could sell at affordable prices. The name reflects the joy of gathering with family and friends and celebrating a legacy of traditions they hope will continue through future generations.
The grapes are sourced from the finest vineyards in the Columbia Valley of Washington. The wines are crafted to be fruit-driven and approachable with a hands-off philosophy. “Utilizing minimal intervention in the winery, we strive to showcase each varietal, and each vintage, to its full potential,” says Daniel.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are raised high atop the Horse Heaven Hills appellation, where wind-blown sand and loess mix with sediments from the Great Missoula Flood, and settle into the hot and craggy rubble of Columbia Basin basalt. The Horse Heaven Hills vineyards are 10 to 20 years old. Days are hot and nights are very cool, producing fruit with a great balance of acidity and flavor. Harvesting is early to preserve the freshness and florality of the grapes. The wine is made in accordance with Certified Organic Protocols.
The Cabernet is made in a hands-off style with a very slight use of oak in maturation. It is a simple wine made from grapes that showcase the best of what the Columbia Valley has to offer.
