The Northwest is the largest geographic wine region in the United States, full of diverse and distinct wine varietals. With more than 1000 wineries, the production is second only to California. The viticulturists and vintners in the Pacific Northwest are pioneers in biodynamic and earth-friendly wine growing, wine production, and wine bottling.
Wine regions span from the desert climate of Eastern Washington, the oldest of the regions in the Pacific Northwest, to the cooler climates of the Willamette Valley. The climate and shifts in weather dramatically affect the types of grape varietals grown in each region, as well as the nuances found in those varietals.
