for this region?

Walla Walla is a wine region within Columbia Valley that straddles both Oregon and Washington. Wine-making began in the mid-1800s, when an influx of pioneers, many of them Italian immigrants, who first settled in the area for the burgeoning fur trade and the Idaho gold rush. Though the commercial wine industry didn’t catch on in the region until the 1950s when the Pesciallo family established Blue Mountain Vineyards, the first in the region since the Prohibition. 

By the 1970s, wine-makers could see the potential for greatness thanks to climate conditions conducive to long growing seasons. The Cascade Mountain forms a natural rain shadow that protects the region, resulting in hot days and cool nights. There are a variety of terroirs extending through the region from the Blue Mountains downward. Glacial melt from the time of the Ice Age has left a deposit of rich, grape-friendly silt in much of the growing region. Walla Walla was granted AVA status in 1984.
