Monet Vineyards is my secret garden.
When I came to the Washington countryside, I had a desire to create a place that echoed the beauty of the European homes and gardens I’d admired while growing up in Portugal. During my childhood I had the opportunity to sit by water pools, walk through gardens and admire vine-covered houses. I romanticized about living in places like those.
Years passed, and life got busy with other passions and ventures. It was only when I settled in the Pacific Northwest that the lush landscape inspired me to begin building my dream. In 2000 the house was completed. In 2006, Purple Rain Vineyard was established as a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) with a plan to transition to an event venue, and in the future, a winery.
The time has come for me to open my gates and offer this location as a place for you to enjoy and create memorable moments. I want to share with you, as others did with me, the peace and simple joy of a well-loved place that stands in harmony with nature.
