Gifford Hirlinger- It started out simply enough, growing grapes and selling them to local wineries. But after a couple of years they decided to complicate their lives by getting into the winemaking aspect of the business… resulting in Gifford Hirlinger.
This wine ROCKS! This winery is located in an old schoolhouse, in historic Frenchtown, a small community west of Walla Walla, founded by French-Canadian immigrants in the 1800s. "L'Ecole No. 41 Merlot has an attractive nose full of berry flavors. On the palate, it's dense but smooth, complex and well-balanced - an extremely enjoyable wine." http://www.lecole.com
