Stillwater Creek Vineyard’s farming practices are designed to take advantage of the site’s ideal location, excellent climatic conditions and unique soils to grow top quality wine grapes while using and developing sustainable agricultural practices that will protect the land for generations to come.

To achieve these goals, our experienced farm team, lead by veteran viticulturist Ed Kelly , pays meticulous attention to all details of vineyard operation including pruning, canopy management, irrigation, fertilization and crop loads.  With thoughtful management of our soils, irrigation water, careful monitoring of disease pressure and judicious use of high quality minerals, we continue to grow our sustainable farming practices.

In March 2007, Stillwater Creek was the first Columbia Valley vineyard certified “Salmon Safe” by Seattle’s Stewardship Partners for environmental practices that help protect water quality and habitat for fish and wildlife, particularly native Northwest salmon.
