During the mid-1800’s, Chief Kamiak of the Yakama Tribe initiated irrigation of the fertile Columbia Valley soil. In 1907, our grandfather established Kamiak Ranch in eastern Washington.
Thanks to those who came before us, we have the ability to grow grapes of character, intensity and distinction in the sun-drenched Columbia Valley.
Kamiak wines are a tribute to our predecessors. Without them, we would not have the technology and skill that have made the Washington wine industry what it is today.
Still found in many of the areas where our Kamiak grapes are grown, the Native American petroglyph on our labels is a tribute to the rich history of Columbia Valley’s true agricultural leaders.
