Not sure which wineries you want to visit?

Due to the unique climate and geography found in the gorge, it exhibits a wide range of terroir in a relatively small region. This allows for many different varietals of grapes to be produced and thus it is marketed as a “world of wine in 40 miles”

All you have to do is let us know what kinds of wine you love and we’ll let you know where you should go!

About the Columbia Gorge AVA

The Columbia Gorge AVA is an American Viticultural Area which includes land surrounding the Columbia River Gorge, straddling the border between Oregon and Washington. Due to the unique climate and geography found in the gorge, this AVA exhibits a wide range of terroir in a relatively small region. This allows for many different varietals of grapes to be produced and thus it is marketed as a “world of wine in 40 miles”.

The Columbia Gorge AVA consists of four counties; Hood River and Wasco counties in Oregon, and Skamania and Klickitat counties in Washington. The region stretches from Hood River, Oregon and White Salmon, Washington in the west, to Biggs Junction, Oregon and Goldendale, Washington in the east. It includes the river valleys of the Hood River and Deschutes River in Oregon, and the Klickitat River and Little Klickitat River in Washington.

The Columbia River is at the heart of the Columbia Gorge AVA. As this region lies to the east of the summits of nearby Mount Hood and Mount Adams, it is in rain shadow of these Cascade volcanoes. The region is significantly drier than the Portland metropolitan area to the west. Annual precipitation ranges from 36 inches at the western end of the range, to only 10 inches in the eastern part. Elevation in the region varies considerably, increasing as one travels from the Columbia River into the plateaus on either side, and the strong Columbia Gorge winds also play a factor in the region’s climate. This again, allows a wide variety of grapes to be grown in the Columbia Gorge.
