Dick Boushey is one of Washington’s premier Syrah growers. He has 39 acres designated to Syrah and has planted the vines on hillsides with rocky, impoverished soils. The slope and the shallow soil curtails syrah’s natural vigor. It is this planting that has put Boushey and Washington State on the map as a great syrah producing region.
