Our Story

Aquilini Wines Red Mountain Story
Play Video

Our family story began on a small farm in Brescia, Italy. These deep ancestral roots inspired a passion for farming and fine wine that we have carried with us for generations; it was our last great purpose left to pursue.
 
In our search to realize this dream, we immediately identified with Red Mountain’s up-and-coming youth. We knew its low rainfall, cleansing winds, and high alkaline soils could be tailored to propagate fine grape varietals. We felt Red Mountain was a place where one could make history.

We set out on our journey to put the Red Mountain AVA in the same breadth to rival the World’s best wine regions. 

We’ve assembled a world-class vineyards management and winemaking team from Washington, Italy, and France to balance the best practices from the new and old worlds. It’s no wonder that every wine that is 100% sourced from these vineyards have scored 90+ points. In our more recent entries into the Horse Heaven Hills and Columbia Valley AVA’s, our single minded commitment continues: Grow the best grapes in the World!

About Washington Wines

With almost two centuries to perfect the art of winemaking, Washington has become the second largest wine-producing state in the US. Washington’s start in the wine business can be dated all the way back to 1825, when the first grapes were planted. Washington shares the same latitude as some of the top European wine regions, allowing for up to 17 hours of sunlight per day during the growing season. This, combined with the state’s climate and soil, creates the ideal conditions for fruit bearing. Thanks to these conditions, Washington has seen a steady growth of its wine industry and now boasts more than 60,000 acres of land that produce over 80 varieties of grapes. Over the years, many Washington wineries have been nationally recognized for producing top ranked wines, and premium wines continue to be produced in the 1,050 licensed wineries throughout the state.
