Situated in the organic, biodynamic AVA of Naches Heights, Conley Vineyard is an incredibly important vineyard for Swick Wines. The area's elevation ranges from 1,200 to 2,000 feet in a slow ramp to the west, which allows it to drain off excessively cold air that can cause freeze damage. It sees as many days of sun as anywhere in Washington's grape growing regions, ensuring the grapes will ripen well. The height bestows cool nights upon the grapes, imbuing them with food friendly acidity to balance the ripeness.
