His name was “Guy” William Powers. He was a farmer and cattle rancher in the shadow of Mount St. Helens until a certain day in May of 1980. After that fateful event, Mr. Powers decided to move east to the Tri-Cities and try his hand at grape growing in Kennewick, Washington. He basically taught himself to be a viticulturist and winemaker. Not long after, he began Badger Mountain which he decided to work totally organically.

While creating Badger Mountain, and later, Powers Winery, Guy utilized solar power and bio-diesel fuels to run, what remains to be, a very “green” operation. His motivation for all of this was his concern for the health and safety of his neighbors and fellow Washingtonians. He also pioneered winemaking techniques that do not include the use of sulfites in the NSA (no sulfites added) line of wines we are feature this Earth Day week.

If you are looking for wines with EXTREMELY low levels of sulfites, these are your wines. They come with a USDA organic certification which prohibits the additions of sulfites in the winemaking process.
