The Columbia Valley AVA lies in the Columbia River Plateau, through much of central and southern Washington State, with a small section crossing into Oregon. The Columbia Valley stretches between the 46th and 47th parallel, which puts it in line with the well-known French wine growing regions of Bordeaux and
Burgundy. Compared to more southern growing regions, this northern latitude allows two more hours of additional daylight during the summer growing season. This long growing season also allows the grapes to be harvested at a cooler temperature - giving our winemakers the ideal window to pick when grapes are in perfect balance.
