Description:

ILLAHE (ILL-UH-HEE) is a Chinook Jargon word meaning earth, land, or soil. Winery Features: Gravity-fed vinification : The multi-level facility will enable us to make our small batches in the most gentle way possible for the grapes. By moving wine carefully down the levels, we will be able to minimize fruit damage and take care in separating our lees and seeds from the fermentors. The levels will also enable us to use gravity while bottling our wines, eliminating pumping at this stage. Solar power : Illahe currently generates more solar power than it uses, thanks to 3500 square feet of solar panels on the old winery facility. The panels face south and generate up to 50 kiloWatt hours per day. We also use the solar power of photosynthesis to mature our grapes. Rainwater harvesting : Thanks to a moderate well on the site, Illahe has built a rainwater storage tank to feed our cleaning processes. The rainwater is collected from the roof, filtered, and pumped to hose stations in the building. The roof can collect about 75,000 gallons a year, but we will use only a fraction of this to clean processing equipment and barrels throughout the year.
