MANAGED BY LAWRENCE VINEYARDS
Stoneridge Vineyard is owned by the Davis family, a long-time Royal Slope farming family. The late Roy Davis and his wife Rhonda started planting Stoneridge in 2000. Their son Seth Davis further developed the property from 2006-2013, transitioning some of the varieties that were deemed unsuitable for their location. Located south of the Corfu Crossing vineyard by five miles on Highway 26, Stoneridge is a very warm site on the Royal Slope with unique soil consisting of cobbly and gravelly sandy loam. The site has been sustainably farmed by Lawrence Vineyards since 2018.
Stoneridge is the vineyard source for the renowned 100-point Royal City Syrah made by Charles Smith (2006 vintage; first ever 100-point score from Wine Enthusiast for a Washington wine).
ABOUT THE NAME
When the Davis family began working the ground in this unique area of the Royal Slope, it was a major feat and constant battle with the large amount of rocks that were throughout the soils here. Due to this, the original farm name was Bedrock Farms. The name Stoneridge pays homage to the original farm name and adjacent ridge.
"When I was a child I spent many a Saturday helping Seth Davis's older brother Joe pick rocks so we could swim in their pool or get treated to a free movie at the theater, so I have a long history with this property. Joe and Seth are still close friends of mine." ~ Lawrence Vineyards Owner, Josh Lawrence
