No longer 9 but 10 AVA’s
I recently wrote that Washington has 9 American Viticulture Areas…. I’ve been corrected….We actually have 10! On February 20, 2009 Snipes Mountain was recognized as Washington’s newest AVA. Snipes Mountain encompasses 4,145-acres in the Yakima Valley and joins the more popular Rattlesnake Ridge and Red Mountain AVA’s in the area.
