Washington State

The Washington State wine region encompasses the entire state and is the second largest premium wine producer in the United States. Bisected by the Cascade Mountain Range from north to south, areas west of the Cascade crest have a maritime climate, whereas areas to the east have a semi-arid climate. Over 99% of vineyard plantings are in eastern Washington where warm, dry temperatures allow a wide variety of grapes to ripen. Vineyard soils are largely defined by their relationship to the Missoula Floods. Warm, dry weather and the use of irrigation lead to minimal vintage variation and consistently high-quality wines.
