       The Puget Sound AVA's climate is similar to that of  the Loire Valley in France and some of Germany's viticulture regions.  Some of the wine grape varieties grown there include Pinot Noir, Madeleine Angevine, Müller Thurgau, Siegerrebe, Chasselas, Island Belle and a few others.  Research is being conducted to investigate other viable varieties that might do well in this cool-climate viticultural area.  While close to 98% of wine grapes grown in Washington come out of vineyards on the east side of the Cascade Mountains, some cool-climate varieties are grown in Washington's Puget Sound AVA.

       To experience the terroir of this distinct region and explore the influence it has on several varietals wines, be sure to visit a few of the regional wineries that produce at least some wines from Puget Sound  vineyards.  Click on the thumbnail map below to see the locations of Puget Sound wineries that produce at least some of their wines from locally grown grapes.
