Horan Estates Winery
About the Winery
In the year 2000, Doug McDougall planted an organic apple orchard on the south slope of the Frenchman Hills not far from Royal City, Washington. At the same time, he lined out about 2 acres of Syrah wine grapes on land near his orchard on Frenchman Hills, just to see how they would turn out. The first vintage was produced in 2002, and Doug sold the small amount of grapes to a well known winemaker from the Tri-Cities area. When the winemaker praised the high quality of the grapes he had received, Doug, along with his wife Diana and dear friends Ross and Kelly Riedinger, decided to start a small winery in Wenatchee Heights, beginning with the 2003 crop. They named the winery Horan Estates, paying tribute to Doug’s mother’s side of the family, who had historical ties to the Wenatchee Valley since the late 1800’s. In the fall of 2010, Doug's cousin, Beth Dobbs, joined with the McDougalls to help with the marketing of Horan Estates award winning wines to local wine shops and restaurants.
