Monet Vineyards is a private estate. When I came to the Washington countryside, I had a desire to create a place that echoed the beauty of the European homes and gardens I’d admired while growing up in Portugal. During my childhood I had the opportunity to sit by water pools, walk through gardens and admire vine-covered houses. I romanticized about living in places like those. Years passed, and life got busy with other passions and ventures. It was only when I settled in the Pacific Northwest that the lush landscape inspired me to begin building my dream. In 2000 the house was completed. In 2006, Purple Rain Vineyard was established as a CSA, (Community Supported Agriculture) with a plan to transition to an event venue, and in the future, a winery. In 2016 we renamed Purple Rain Vineyard to Monet Vineyards. We feel that Monet Vineyards fits the current and future vision of the venue’s landscape.Monet Vineyards is open for private functions and photo sessions for you to enjoy and create memorable moments. I want to share with you, as others did with me, the peace and simple joy of a well-loved place that stands in harmony with nature.
