Home to more than 90 wineries and five American Viticulture Areas (AVA's) in just 70 short miles, the Yakima Valley contains more than 17,000 acres of producing vineyards. We proudly produce over half of Washington State's wine grapes, and support a huge number of winemakers throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Walla Walla, Woodenville and Oregon's Willamette Valley. The sunny slopes of the Yakima Valley foothills provide the perfect growing conditions for producing intensely flavored, balanced and complex wines such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah, and our winemakers continue to bring in a steady stream of awards year after year. Our wineries are unpretentious, the winemakers friendly and open, all of which makes wine tasting in the Yakima Valley an intimate and rewarding experience.

Large-scale irrigation, fueled by runoff from the melting snowcaps of the Cascade Mountains, began in eastern Washington in 1903, unlocking the dormant potential of the rich volcanic soils and sunny, arid climate. Italian and German varietals were planted in the Yakima and Columbia Valleys and wine grape acreage expanded rapidly in the early part of the 20th century.Explore the Past
