Willow Crest is best known for its estate-grown aromatic white wines from Washington state’s Yakima Valley. The Minick Family first planted wine grapes on their Roza farm, north of Prosser, in 1982. In 1995, David J. Minick, a third generation farmer, took grape-growing to the next level by making handcrafted wine from select blocks of the family vineyard and, soon after, bottled the first vintage of Willow Crest. Focusing on aromatic white wines such as Pinot Gris, Riesling, Muscat Canelli, Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé, Willow Crest Winery uses estate-grown fruit that David plants, cultivates, and harvests.
