Hiyu is a 30 acre natural farm in the Hood River Valley. Guided by nature and inspired by ideas from biodynamics and permaculture we tend vines, raise animals, garden, cook and make wine to reveal an experience of place.
The vines are planted in silt loam over basalt on a southeast facing hillside above the Hood River. Our site lies just 22 miles from the summit of Mt. Hood and the wines are shaped by the weather from the mountain. There are currently 14 acres in vine from which we make an average of 1100 cases annually.
We are happy to offer free shipping on all purchases of 12 bottles or more.
This is from a quarter acre experimental section of vineyard dedicated to Syrah. The tiny amount of fruit is fermented whole cluster, in a barrique without its head, and macerates for up to 90 days before being pressed into a single half barrel.
