of perfect alignment between three celestial bodies,
such as that occurring during a total solar eclipse.
“I have witnessed several total
solar eclipses and have always been awestruck
by this spectacular sight and experience. I am thrilled to have found this fun and unique
name for my winery.
The name not only reflects my personal,
lifelong interest in space & astronomy, but
the concept of alignment is fundamental in our

and diverse vineyards blended together in perfect

SYZYGY’s metal and bronze sign crafted
by local artist Victor Trejo.
SYZYGY produces very limited red wines from vineyard sources expressing diverse terroir, including sites in Walla Walla, Horse Heaven Hills, Red Mountain and the Wahluke Slope. Our bottled wines include a Syrah, a Cabernet Sauvignon and unique red blends (including the more recent addition of Malbec and Tempranillo).
SYZYGY began production in 2002 with 600 cases and has grown to approximately 2000 cases in our current vintages. All wines are made "crush to bottle" at our facility located near the Walla Walla Airport.
Our address: 405 E. Boeing Avenue (at the corner of Boeing & "D" Street).
We believe that the best wines are crafted
through the meticulous management of small vineyard
blocks within a variety of sites offering diverse
terroir. Our strategy is to procure all of our
grapes under long-term acreage contracts thereby
having the greatest control and flexibility as
to how our fruit is grown. By working with vineyards
across multiple appellations we are also better
protected from adverse weather occurrences that
may impact a particular area during any harvest.
We also believe in long-term relationships with
growers committed to sustainable, environmentally-friendly
We care for our wines as if they were our own
children, nurturing their development without
interfering in their freedom of expression.
