Mercer Weekend Tasting

Our usual weekend tasting but with something special. The hours will be 4:30-6:30pm on Friday, and 2-6pm on Saturday. Don’t worry, we’ll have the game on.

1774: Hugh Mercer (Scottish Highlander) arrives from Scotland a doctor and soldier under George Washington. He dies at the Battle of Princeton, but is survived by his five children – thus the beginning of the Mercer Clan in the United States.

1886: William Mercer (Rob and Will’s Great, Great Grandfather) heads west, determined to find property that would allow him to support his family. He settled in the Prosser area at this time.

The Mercer Family came to the Horse Heaven Hills more than 125 years ago and has been farming for four generations. They planted their first grape vines in 1972, making them the first family to plant and grow vinifera in the state. The family also has deep roots in livestock and vegetable row crops.

The diversified operations all occur on their 13,000 acre farm located along the Columbia River. The family is known throughout Eastern Washington for their work ethic, their patriotism and their contributions to the community.
