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 »

We try to have French toast and Mountain Dome sparkling wine at least once a month for breakfast! The late owner of Mountain Dome, Michael Manz (the family has kept the business going) recommended celebrating life every day and his spar... Read More

  • Claar Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Washington 2008


    Lots of stone fruit aromas catch the nose of this fruity Sauvignon Blanc. Peaches, apricots and mangoes are followed by notes of white pear and pineapple. The mouth is round with touches of exotic fruits and is vibrant on the finish. It is an excellent wine for any shellfish, shrimp and sushi or as an aperitif. Read More

  • Tamarack Cellars Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2007


    Pretty and fun tropical fruits are quite apparent in the nose with a quite apparent hit of oak. A full dare I say unctious mouthfeel follows with a semi-dry finish.The light oaking hints of refined tobacco, touches of green capsicum, and a subtle spice....and quite long in the nose with a light bit of icing sugar. A slight bittering in the fin... Read More
