Washington State is a premium wine producing region with over 498 distinct wineries. Located in the northwest corner of the United States, it has excellent geography, soil, and weather conditions conducive for producing consistent grapes year after year. Even though it is considered a relatively young wine industry, it is now the nation’s second largest wine producer. Washington State is also proud to be ranked among the world’s top wine regions. Washington wines are now available in all 50 states and internationally in more than 40 countries.
With over 30,000 acres planted, there are over ten regions that are perfect for growing premium vinifera wine grapes which produce consistent quality, resulting in strong vintages year after year.
