Goose Ridge Estate Winery

Quintessential, a family-owned and -operated import, marketing and sales company, has added Goose Ridge Estate Winery to its portfolio, effective immediately.

With this deal, Quintessential adds a Washington State winery.

“The Monson family represents the epitome of excellence in the wine industry,” says Dennis Kreps, co-owner of Quintessential. “Their commitment to the stewardship of the land is evident in the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of their wines. We are excited to introduce more people to these outstanding offerings from Washington State.”

Says Molly Monson-Stutesman, vice president of sales and marketing at Goose Ridge Vineyard and Winery, “We are thrilled to join Quintessential’s portfolio and anticipate a fruitful partnership. Our family’s journey in winemaking began with our father, Arvid, whose vision transformed our property in Washington’s Columbia Valley into a premier vineyard site. Today, we are proud to carry forward his legacy with wines rooted in our vineyards and reflective of our unique terroir.”

From beginnings farming orchards and raising cattle, the Monson family’s interest for wine grape cultivation began in 1998. Today, the third and fourth generation of Monsons actively manage Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard and Winery, carrying forward the legacy initiated by M.L. Monson in the early 1900s.

Situated on the “saddle” of land known as the Goose Gap AVA in the Columbia Valley, Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard stands as the largest contiguous estate vineyard in Washington State, the company says.
