The Columbia Valley AVA is Washington’s all-encompassing region with some 11 million acres of land in all. Included within its confines are six other American Viticultural Areas (AVA) including Yakima Valley, Red Mountain, Walla Walla Valley, Horse Heaven Hills, Rattlesnake Hills and Wahluke Slope. The Columbia Gorge and Puget Sound AVAs are the only appellations in Washington that fall outside of its borders. Despite the number of sub-appellations within its boundaries, there is the potential for further AVA development. The most significant places where the Columbia Valley is the primary appellation and does not overlap another AVA are the Royal Slope, the Columbia Basin, and the vast expanse north of the Rattlesnake Hills, which includes the entire region loosely called Columbia Cascade.

Apart from its sheer size, the Columbia valley is also widely seen on wine labels because many of Washington’s best known wineries are located in the Seattle metropolitan area. These wineries transport grapes over Read more »

  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Sweet Riesling Harvest Select 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet wet white wine with only the slightest bit of tart / dry in the finish. Agreeable, drinkable and stand alone, though would also pair well with a light dinner or cheese plate. A memorable treat with character that's likely to induce a craving every few months. Read More

  • House Wine Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy vanilla and green apple notes on the nose. Nicely fruit forward in the mouth, with peach, melon and green apple flavors and nice medium plus acidity. Velvety in the mouth and well balanced. Read More

  • Fern Walk Sauvignon Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This clean, refreshing wine from the Mark Anthony Group in Vancouver (sourced from the Okanagan Valley) is a lightly scented Sauvignon Blanc with slight grass notes and wet granite on the nose. Flavour tends to pear and kiwi with a certain spring water purity. Not punching with typical NZ Sauvignon Blanc weight, but reflective of the Okanagan ... Read More

  • Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark fruits and a bit of cassis on the nose. Fruit forward with moderate acidity with a bitey tannic finish. P.S. Tannins smoothed out by the second day. Give it some air. Read More

  • Wild Meadows Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Golden berries and orange marmalade on the nose with a hint of tea leaf on the nose. Soft and rich in the mouth with lemon and peach flavors, nice oak integration and a touch of yeasty, oaty hint through the midpalate that adds a bit of complexity and leads nicely into the cream on the finish.
