Yakima Valley was the first winegrowing appellation established in Washington State, and the entire Pacific Northwest. The official American Viticultural Area (AVA) was designated in 1983.


Yakima Valley cultivates 17,000 acres of wine grapes, the most of any appellation in Washington State, and the entire Pacific Northwest. Yakima Valley vines supply half of Washington’s wine production, including 80 local wineries.


Yakima Valley vineyards support the best Washington State and Pacific Northwest wineries, including Quilceda Creek, DeLille Cellars, Andrew Will, Col Solare, Côte Bonneville, Betz Family, Owen Roe, and many more.


Spring Barrel Tasting

Spring Barrel Tasting weekend, April 27–29, 2018, is the most popular annual event for Yakima Valley vintners and those who appreciate the fine wines coming from the Valley. Sample unfinished wine right from the barrel, gain insight into the artistic process at each winery, and get a jump on tasting and purchasing some of the best wines in wine country.

Wine & Philanthropy

The wine industry supports a wide range of initiatives from local education, animal welfare, and food programs, to large-scale events such as the Auction of Washington wine which raised $4.1 million last year for its beneficiaries, including Seattle Children’s hospital, Washington State University’s Viticulture and Enology research program and an annual industry grant.
