Dumas Station acquires Birch Creek vineyard


October 31, 2019

DAYTON–Dumas Station Wines has recently acquired Birch Creek Vineyard, a 32–acre vineyard located in the heart of the Walla Walla Valley AVA.

Birch Creek consists principally of Bordeaux varieties. The first block of Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1997. Over the years, several wineries—including Dumas Station—have produced award winning wines using grapes from Birch Creek. The Dumas Station team, led by Jay DeWitt, managing partner and vigneron, has managed the vineyard since 2007.

To celebrate the purchase of it first vineyard, Dumas Station is releasing two block-designated wines made exclusively from Birch Creek Cabernet Sauvignon.

The two bottlings are designated as the “DeWitt Block” and the “Old Block” on the label. The DeWitt Block Cabernet is available for purchase now at the winery’s tasting room, and on Dumas Station’s new website ( The Old Block Cabernet will be released later this winter.

Both block-designated wines are the first to use Dumas Station’s refreshed label design. The new labels feature the winery’s noted historic train photographs, an updated logo and foil accents. The refreshed label designs will be used in all upcoming Dumas Station wines as new lots are bottled.
