With 14 unique growing regions, Washington State (#WAwine) is a mosaic of landscapes, from evergreen coasts and snow-capped mountains, to a vast sagebrush desert, where the sun shines 300 days a year. Whether it’s Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet or any other of the 70 grape varieties grown, these wines are designed to impress the palate of any wine enthusiast. Destined for a stamp in your liquid passport, visit and taste Washington from the comfort of your own home by exploring this region bottle by bottle, grape by grape.
Geographically, this wine region is nestled to the east of two mountain ranges at the perfect wine growing latitude of 46 degrees. Here, vineyards are planted on volcanic soils, perfectly suited for growing exceptional grapes given their unique makeup. Wines are hand-crafted by ambitious, talented winemakers who bring out the purest of terroir, and show a balance of authentic fruit expressions to deliver perfection in your glass.
