ANIMALE is a Washington winery that produces, by hand, small quantities of wines made from grapes grown at small, family-farmed Yakima Valley and Puget Sound vineyards.

ANIMALE wines are stylistically inspired by great wines of France and Italy, with an emphasis on authentic grape varietal qualities. They are notable for intensity, concentration, and balance; and they are never fined, nor filtered, nor subjected to other common industrial processes. The wines reliably offer a distinctive and refreshing wine-drinking experience.

ANIMALE works with select cooler-climate Washington state vineyards, where well-drained soils, cool nights, low yields, small berry size, limited irrigation, and late harvests all result in special grapes that make unusually complex wines.

ANIMALE began commercial production with the 2001 vintage. Production is maintained at less than 200 cases per year.
