Winery Description

syn-cline (‘sin-klin): A trough of stratified rock in which the beds dip toward each other from either side.
Directly west of the vineyard and winery is a series of sheer, nearly 100 meter cliffs that rise up into the surrounding mountains straight out of the Columbia River. Locally known as the ‘Coyote Wall Syncline’, this dramatic geological feature gives the winery its name.  It is at this precise point that the rainy western region of the Columbia Gorge transitions into a semi-arid environment.
Syncline is a small family winery in the Columbia Gorge of Washington state.  Owners and vintners Poppie and James Mantone met during the harvest of 1997 while working crush together.  They fell madly in love, married and soon began plans for a winery of their own.  They relocated their home to the Columbia Gorge and produced their first vintage in 1999.  Their passion for Rhone wines and their vision of the potential of Rhone varieties in select areas of Washington State led them to bottling Syrah and Grenache, while also beginning to plant Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Counoise and Carignan.
