Valicoff Estates is an extension of a love affair that began with the travels of Stoyan Valicoff to America. Stoyan’s voyage from Bulgaria began in 1905 at the age of 15. In 1921 Stoyan began planting his own farm, then developing the fruits of his labor into fine wine. Robert and Stephanie Valicoff are proud to continue the family tradition in the Yakima Valley. The Rattlesnake Hills provide fertile soils and a great wine grape growing climate. These growing conditions help create grapes suitable for some of the world’s finest wines. With such fine fruit, it made great sense to trust Award Winning Winemaker Robert Smasne to share his talents and provide you the best possible experience.
