If You're Lucky Enough to be Irish, You're Lucky Enough!
Ryan Patrick Vineyards is lucky to be a pioneer winery in the newly designated Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley AVA. A legacy started over 60 years ago. The Flanagan Family has farmed the Ancient Lakes area over the span of three generations.
Grandpa Sid Flanagan (1st generation) started farming the native land in 1951 as part of the Columbia Basin Project. Terry and Vivian Flanagan (2nd generation) founded Ryan Patrick Vineyards in 1996 naming the winery after their two sons, Ryan and Patrick. Vivian Flanagan opened the tasting room, now located in Leavenworth, Washington in 2002 and enjoys pouring wines to visitors from all over the world. "Ryan" Flanagan (3rd generation) has been in the vineyards since 1996 and enjoys working under blue skies 300+ days a year. Wendy Flanagan, Ryan's wife, helps with marketing efforts for the winery. The inspiration behind it all is "Patrick" Flanagan who celebrated life, loved his friends and inspired his family's passion for wine.
"To all the days here and after, May they be filled with fond memories, happiness and laughter." -Irish Toast
