Washington Wine History Interviews: Mike Sauer, Red Willow Vineyard

Mike Sauer (b. 1947) was a farm boy from Toppenish who became the founder and guiding force behind Red Willow Vineyard, near Wapato and White Swan in the Yakima Valley. He graduated from Washington State University with a degree in agricultural economics. He thought he would end up working for a bank or a big food corporation. It didn’t work out that way, because life had a few surprises in store for Sauer. He married fellow WSU student Karen Stephenson, and when he graduated, his father-in-law needed someone to help run his sprawling farm. The farm mostly grew hay, cattle, wheat, and alfalfa for seed. But a happy accident led Sauer to grapes in the early 1970s, before Washington had a true wine industry to speak of. Here, in a June 10, 2022, interview with HistoryLink's Jim Kershner at the Red Willow Vineyard, Sauer tells the story of how he came to be a grape grower, and how he was eventually led to fine wine grapes.
