Washington Wineries & Wine Regions

Yakima Valley, Rattlesnake Hills, Snipes Mountain
& Red Mountain wine regions
...the wineries, the wine country, the wines

Wine Shops & Wine Bars

    Keep your eye on the appellations of Yakima Valley and Red Mountain.  Currently, more than 80 Washington wineriesOld-vine Chardonnay at Kestrel Vineyard in Yakima Valley Wine Country are located in the Yakima Valley, Rattlesnake Hills and Red Mountain wine regions, with several more planned. Not all are open for public tasting.  Be sure to allow time to wander the many back  roads of the area where most vineyards are located.  And during harvest season in the fall, roll down the window and breathe deep. 

       More than 12,000 vineyard acres are grown within the boundaries of the Yakima Valley appellation.  The Yakima Valley AVA encompasses the Red Mountain AVA, the Rattlesnake Hills AVA and the Snipes Mountain AVA, and in turn, the boundaries of the Yakima Valley AVA's lie completely within the much larger Columbia Valley appellation, as do the Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills and the Naches Heights AVA authorized in December 2011.

       In 1983 , the Yakima Valley appellation was determined distinct from the larger Columbia Valley appellation that surrounds it, and it was authorized as an official American Viticultural Area (AVA/appellation).  The three east-to-west geologic folds in the earth's crust, running east from the City of Yakima -- the Ahtanum Ridge, the Rattlesnake Hills and the Horse Heaven Hills -- were the primary land masses associated with distinguishing the boundaries of this river valley carved by the Yakima River.

       A system of canals and wells, along with the Columbia, Yakima and Snake Rivers, supplies growers in this dry valley with ample water to carefully control irrigation of their vineyards. The availability of water has transformed the Yakima and Columbia Valleys into the largest and most productive wine regions in the Northwest.  Come visit and discover a country full of vineyards, orchards, hop yards and row crops.
 


Navigating the Yakima Valley
and its sub-appellations
 

Wine Shops & Wine Bars 

Wines Northwest organizes wine touring information related to the Yakima Valley AVA into two major sections -- the Upper Yakima Valley and the Lower Yakima Valley.  Within the Upper Valley lies the Rattlesnake Hills sub-appellation (click on the thumbnail map to see more detail).  The Red Mountain sub-appellation is located in the lower portion of the Yakima Valley, as is the burgeoning Prosser area.  The most recently designated AVA within the Yakima Valley appellation is  Snipes Mountain AVA which lies more or less in the central portion of the Valley between Granger and Sunnyside.

      Use our mapping system to locate and explore the many wineries throughout these wine regions. Watch for links to lists of  nearby lodging, dining and touring suggestions for the corresponding areas.
