Wines of the Rugged Horse Heaven Hills.
Named after the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, H3 wines were created in 2008 as a sister project of the renowned Columbia Crest Winery. Today, H3 stands on its own dedicated to the unique expression of this single AVA.
It means more than finding what you like. It means curating your identity without losing the spirit of where you came from. It means holding true to the rough that made you a diamond.
At H3, our wines hold true to the wild and rugged terrain of Horse Heaven Hills and are transformed into something stylishly superb. These wines are carefully curated to enhance their great taste, in order to entice yours.
