Atmosphere Located in a beautiful bed and breakfast, Heathen Estate brings a sinister touch to the wine world.  Owner Sunny Parsons, a renowned local brewer, bought the former Village Vineyards in 2016 with plans to expand his brewery on the winery land.  Legalities restrict Sunny’s beers from being produced on site, but those legalities don’t stop the beers from being available to guests!  If you’re lucky, you may be able to taste the beers along with the wines.

How’s the Wine? A wide variety of wines are produced by the winery, with Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay being grown on-site.  Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo, and Syrah are sourced from Eastern Washington and Southern Oregon.

Experiences You can rent out the estate!  You can also join their wine club which gives you perks such as a free glass or bottle of wine (dependent upon your club level) on your birthday and VIP access to winery events.
