Luke Columbia Valley

Located in the Columbia Valley AVA, the Wahluke Slope AVA produces some of the best Washington State wines.  LUKE is no exception; producing the fastest growing Washington wines in their category. Hand crafted by some of the best people & vineyards in Washington.  The results are truly exceptional wines vintage after vintage.


In Washington state, the place to concentrate on bold red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, is the Wahluke Slope. LUKE Columbia Valley is named for this sub-AVA of Columbia Valley, with each varietal’s fruit sourced from its own selection of distinct vineyards. Protected from wet weather by both the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, Columbia Valley vineyards enjoy warm and dry conditions in the eastern part of the state, and the Wahluke Slope has one of the two warmest microclimates within the AVA. Wines made from grapes grown here are ripe and full-bodied with pure varietal fruit flavors.

The Wahluke Slope vineyards that bear the hallmark of great Washington wines are what Thomas and Kristin Vogele sought to harness in creating LUKE wines in 2012. These two Seattle natives utilized their wine business experience to fulfill their vision of crafting a Washington wine evocative of both the region’s top-quality potential and its true character, and quickly gained for LUKE a solid presence in the market.

The wines’ brisk climb to success is spurred by their packaging and consistent 90+ point accolades. LUKE’s identity is both strong and iconic with an authentic human connection. As a metaphor for the human spirit of the great American West, LUKE taps the hero in all of us and LUKE indeed holds to its own high standard.
