Terlato Wine Group has made its first move into Washington state with the purchase of Klipsun Vineyards. Located within the Red Mountain AVA, Klipsun spans 120 acres and is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The purchase price was not disclosed.

Klipsun’s vineyards have supplied fruit to numerous Washington wineries, including Quilceda Creek, Seven Hills, Col Solare and Betz Family, among others. According to Shanken News Daily, a sister site of Wine Spectator, Terlato plans to continue selling Klipsun’s grapes to winemakers.

Klipsun hasn’t made its own wine in the past, but Terlato aims to change that. For more on the story, visit Shanken News Daily.
