About Wine Yakima Valley
Wine Yakima Valley is a member organization of wineries and wine grape growers whose mission is to strengthen awareness of, and attract wine enthusiasts to, Yakima Valley’s Wine Country. Located in south-central Washington, the Yakima Valley is a scenic and leisurely 150-mile drive from Seattle, Spokane, or Portland. The valley is the original, largest, and most diverse wine region in Washington, producing half of the state’s wine. Located on the same parallel as the famous Bordeaux region of France, the Yakima Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area) provides a nearly perfect location to grow wine grapes.
