Wine with purpose

An introduction to Washington

Our old-world connection

Washington is located at nearly the same latitude as some of the top French and Italian wine-growing regions. Vines have thrived here for nearly 150 years. Thanks to the long sunny days and cool nights, Washington's diurnal shift creates ideal temperatures for growing grapes.

Washington wine the Blackboard way

Blackboard grapes are sustainably grown in Washington State, a wine region unlike any other in the world. Here, miles of vines stretch across 19 diverse AVAs to produce a broad range of thriving varietals.

Grown in the Columbia Valley

The Columbia Valley is home to 50,000 acres of vines within 19 distinct AVAs. Contrary to the reputation of the Pacific Northwest, the valley only gets six inches of rainfall a year—as much as the Gobi desert. Our long and consistent growing season produces complex, yet vibrant wines of world-class varietals, ranging from Cabernet Sauvignon to Sauvignon Blanc.

The Blackboard vineyards

In 2019, all our wines were sourced from two famed vineyards in Washington State: Conner Lee and Solaksen. The result? Wines that are textured and vibrant, balanced yet complex.

WHERE WINE GOES FARTHER

Blackboard combines our passion for making wine with our mission to provide greater access to education through donations and partnerships. Each vintage produced provides schools with the tools and resources they need most. With every purchase, our community supports student success at a local, national and international level.

We partner with some of the most celebrated, and sustainable vineyards in Washington State, pushing the boundaries on quality and craftsmanship year over year. With this level of dedication, it’s no surprise that Blackboard wines regularly score 90+ ratings. We’d call them the teacher’s pet of wines, but we don’t want to play favorites.
