About This Item

The story of Woodward Canyon goes back to the beginning of the Washington State wine industry. Established in 1981 by Rick Small and Darcey Fugman-Small, it was the 2nd winery to be established in the Walla Walla Valley and the 19th in the entire state.  They gained recognition early on for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Rick was raised in Eastern Washington on his family’s wheat farm and went onto attend Washington State University earning a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. In the mid 70s, he developed a personal interest in winemaking leading him to plant his first 41 acres of vines on his family farm in Woodward Canyon. Rick is truly a self-taught winemaker, reading all the material he could get his hands on concerning the subject and learning through trial and error. Rick was also the President of the Walla Walla Valley Wine Growers Association when the growers petitioned and received approval from the federal government for the Walla Walla Valley Appellation in 1984.

 

The first vintage of the Artist Series debuted in 1992 and was designed to showcase the finest example of Cabernet Sauvignon throughout Washington while also featuring a different artist’s work on the label every year. #24 is a photograph by  Augusta Sparks Farnum entitled Fur Canyon. Pop the cork and experience the best of Washington Cabernet Sauvignon from a pioneering producer or allow this wine to award you even more pleasure with additional cellar aging.
