Puget Sound AVA
Washington now has nine “appellations” or American Viticultural Areas that cover approximately 31,000 planted acres. Most of Washingtons wine grapes are planted east of the Cascade Mountains. 56% of the plantings are red varietals.
Western Washington is a lessor known player in Washington’s wine growing regions. But the Puget Sound AVA is quietly producing fine wines. This is an area that cold climate wine grapes are grown in. The grapes shown above are good examples of grapes from the west side of the mountains. The wine grapes pictured were grown in Woodinville at Hollywood Hill Vineyards own estate vineyard.
Do you have wine grape real estate?
