Fruitland Valley Vineyard is a family owned and operated business nestled in Stevens County in Eastern Washington. The land links five generations, between living on it or farming it. The vineyard is managed by Brian and Kathy Benson and daughter Leah and husband John Schuldheisz. Together with their son Henry Basil Schuldheisz, three generations currently tend to the vineyard. Leah, John and Henry all live at the vineyard in an eco home. Everyone works hard each day to ensure the highest quality grapes possible.
The grapes were planted in 2012 on a 10-acre plot of land that overlooks the Columbia River. Each of the 7,000 grape plants have been planted by hand. The vineyard sits at a 1400-foot elevation surrounded by majestic pine trees and diverse wildlife. There are a total of nine grape varietals grown, including five red varietals and four white varietals.
