Spring Valley Vineyard

Spring Valley Vineyard - Our heritage and our land captured in our wines

The land has been farmed and lived on for generations; from Uriah Corkrum to his son Frederick and wife Nina Lee onto their daughter Shari and her husband Dean Derby. To honor the family heritage, the wines are named for those ancestors and reflect the expressive character of the land. Situated 12 miles northeast of Walla Walla, Washington, Spring Valley Vineyard basks in the reflective nature of its surroundings, the picturesque wheat fields of the Corkrum Derby homestead. A true estate winery, only fruit grown in the estate vineyards goes into these highly acclaimed wines, all handcrafted by our winemaker. Since joining the team in 2002, he has been committed to carrying on the traditions he learned from Spring Valley's founding winemaker, Devin Corkrum Derby.
