Wine Yakima Valley

Did you know Washington's first cabernet sauvignon came
from the Yakima Valley? Washington State’s wine industry
began in the Yakima Valley. So it’s no surprise
that Yakima Valley vineyards pioneered the first plantings
of several key grape varieties in the Pacific Northwest.

Yakima Valley was the first winegrowing appellation established in Washington State, and the entire Pacific Northwest. The official American Viticultural Area (AVA) was designated in 1983.


Yakima Valley cultivates 17,000 acres of wine grapes, the most of any appellation in Washington State, and the entire Pacific Northwest. Yakima Valley vines supply half of Washington’s wine production, including 80 local wineries.


Yakima Valley vineyards support the best Washington State and Pacific Northwest wineries, including Quilceda Creek, DeLille Cellars, Andrew Will, Col Solare, Côte Bonneville, Betz Family, Owen Roe, and many more.

Winery Spotlight

Lookout Point Winery located in downtown Yakima is owned by George Petzinger and his wife, Ivone. The winery started in their home with the delivery of a five gallon carboy full of fermenting juice as a gift for helping pick grapes. The humorous journey of figuring out how to make wine from it turned into a long lasting fascination with every detail of the winemaking process.
