ABOUT THE COLUMBIA VALLEY

The Columbia Valley wine region in Washington State is renowned for its diverse terroir and exceptional wines. Situated in the eastern part of the state, this expansive American Viticultural Area (AVA) benefits from a continental climate with warm, sunny days and cool nights, ideal for grape cultivation. The region is known for producing a wide variety of grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Riesling, and Chardonnay, among others. These grapes thrive in the valley’s diverse soils, which range from sandy loam to volcanic ash, contributing to the complexity and distinctiveness of Columbia Valley wines. With over 11 million acres, Columbia Valley is Washington’s largest AVA, encompassing sub-appellations such as Yakima Valley, Walla Walla Valley, and Red Mountain, each adding unique characteristics to the wines produced. The Columbia Valley has garnered acclaim for its bold red wines and crisp white wines, showcasing the region’s ability to produce wines of exceptional quality and character.
