Wine Maps: Walla Walla — Washington

This map depicts winery and tasting rooms within the Walla Walla American Viticultural Area (AVA), which is the most remote of all Washington State wine regions that sits in the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the Southeastern corner of Washington State. The region includes land in both Washington and Oregon, but the majority of the vineyards are located in the state of Washington.  Today more than 100 wineries are operating in the valley, and more than 1,800 acres of vineyards have become part of the agricultural landscape.

Grape growing began in the Walla Walla Valley in the 1850s by Italian immigrants, but the AVA wasn’t established until 1984.  Cabernet Sauvignon is the leading varietal while Merlot, Chardonnay and Syrah are other predominant varieties. Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Grenache, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, and Viognier are also grown.

    The majority of the vineyards are located in Washington but the majority of the winegrape acreage in the WW AVA is located in Oregon.
