Steven Thompson and Kris Fade founded Analemma Wines in the Columbia Gorge in 2010. They received biodynamic certification from Demeter in 2017 and released their first certified biodynamic wines in 2020. Analemma’s 52-acre property, Mosier Hills Estate, is planted to a range of grapes, with a focus on varieties from Galicia, Spain.
