Washington Wineries & Wine Regions
Puget Sound Wine Region and Seattle Area Wineries,
Wine Country, Wines
and Wine Shops

       The  Puget Sound wine region is currently Washington's only official American Viticultural Area (AVA) on the west side of the Cascade Mountain Range.  It was recognized as an AVA (or appellation) in 1995.  Only about 1% of the state's wine grapes are grown in this region, which includes the islands and mainland adjoining the waters of Puget Sound and extends east into the Cascade foothills.

       While many Washington wineries are represented in the Puget Sound wine region, only a few of them actually use locally grown grapes to make wine.  To taste the distinct flavors of the Puget Sound AVA, be sure to visit some of these wineries.

       Most wineries with tasting rooms in this western-most appellation of Washington State use grapes grown in the warmer, drier wine regions to the east in the semi-arid climates beyond the Cascade Mountain range.  In fact, approximately 99% of Washington State's wine grapes are grown in the appellations of the Columbia, Yakima, and Walla Walla valleys, the Columbia Gorge, Red Mountain, Rattlesnake Hills, Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills and the Ancient Lakes of the Columbia Valley   - all located on the east side of the Cascade Mountain range.  Other successful growing areas of the Columbia Basin - located in central and north-central Washington - have not yet been authorized as official AVAs.

       Over more recent years, dozens wineries from Central and Eastern Washington have opened tasting rooms in the Greater Seattle Area, especially in Woodinville and a few in Leavenworth for the purpose of locating retail operations closer to primary areas of population and tourism centers.  A few other wineries own and operate production facilities in central Washington, but have located their tasting rooms as well as their corporate offices near the I-5 corridor of the Puget Sound region. 

        The northern edge of the Olympic Peninsula (about two hours west of Seattle) is home to another cluster of wineries, and in between are a few wineries located on various San Juan Islands.  Car and passenger ferries are part of memorable wine-country experiences in this part of Washington State.

         Yet another batch of wineries has emerged in the northern portion of Puget Sound appellation.  Scattered near the I-5 corridor in Whatcom County, nine wineries offer the last Washington wine-tasting opportunities before crossing the border into British Columbia, Canada. 


        When you visit wineries in the Puget Sound area, be sure to make time to enjoy the flavors and characteristics of  wines made with grapes grown in this region's cool-climate terroir; take time to visit a few of the wineries offering Puget Sound-grown winesWatch for locally grown varietals such as Pinot noir, Madeleine Angevine, Siegerrebe and Chasselas.  These varieties thrive in the lush Puget Sound wine region, just as they do in the similar climate of the Loire Valley in France. 

       The more adaptable Pinot gris grape is grown in both temperate Puget Sound vineyards and in a few of the more arid and warmer vineyards of central and eastern Washington.  The climatic differences are significant, resulting in Pinot gris wines of distinctly different flavors and bouquets, depending on the region of their origin.

        The rain shadows of the Olympic Mountains to the west of the Sound create attractive micro climates for growing vinifera grape varieties.  Annual rainfall in these areas can be as low as 17 inches per year, compared with 60 inches or more in other areas of Western Washington.  

       Long periods of freezing temperatures are rare in the Puget Sound basin.  The Sound's large body of water moderates temperature extremes, making possible not only viticulture, but fruit growing as well.  Fruit-wine aficionados will find no lack of delicious choices. 
 


Wine Touring 
in the Puget Sound Wine Region

Seattle Area       Woodinville      Greater Puget Sound Area

   Wines Northwest organizes wine-touring information for the Puget Sound wine region into four sections -- the Greater Puget Sound Area, the Seattle Area, the Woodinville Area and the Whatcom County area in the northYou can find wines from the wineries of this region at many nearby Seattle-area wine shops and other Puget Sound-area wine shops as well. 
 

Greater Puget Sound Area
Wineries, Wine Country and Wines
    Wineries scattered throughout the popular and beautiful Puget Sound Region give wine-country travelers an opportunity to combine wine tasting with an awe-inspiring variety of site-seeing and recreational activities.  Famed for their array of beautiful vacation spots, Northwest Washington's Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound islands are home to many wineries.    Only a relatively small number, however, produce any estate-grown wines.

    Island hopping by ferry is a great way to visit any of the picturesque wineries on the Puget Sound area islands. As you can see from our Puget Sound Wineries Map, even staying on the I-5 corridor puts you in close proximity a several wineries south and north of Seattle.  If you are in a rush, consider stopping at one of the many local wine shops or wine bars where local wines are poured and sold.
