The name Tanjuli comes from the combining of the names of our two children, Taj and Anjuli.
Many people thought that after 32 years in the wine industry Tom Campbell would be looking at
retiring. No way! Tom loves the grapes that come from the Rattlesnake Hills, an area he was
introduced to in 1981 by U C Davis classmate Stan Clarke. Stan had Tom take care of setting up
the white wine production for Quail Run Winery in Zillah in 1982. In 1984 Tom and Hema settled
into the Rattlesnake Hills to start Horizon's Edge Winery eventually selling it to the Padgetts in 1999.
But they could not stay away, so they decided to plant a seven acre vineyard for the production of
unique estate wines. So far the vineyard consists of Pommard clone Pinot Noir, Lampia clone Nebbiolo,
Carmenere, Mourvedre, Viognier, Picpoul Blanc and Orange Muscat.
The vineyard is under the care and supervision of Roger Althoff, an original Tanjuli
family member. We look forward to the wines from these grapes.
Tom decided to kick-start the winery with Malbec, Petit Verdot, Viognier, and Orange Muscat wines
he produced from neighboring Rattlesnake Hills vineyards. We will continue to focus on producing
great wines from great Rattlesnake Hills grapes. Come see our new winery built into the hill of our
vineyard site and taste the magic of Tanjuli Winery where a splendid time is guaranteed for all.
