Connect with Walla Walla Valley:
First designated as an American Viticultural Area in 1984, the Walla Walla Valley straddles the state border: two-thirds in Washington and one-third in Oregon. Elevations soar from 400 to 2,000 feet above sea level, and the region sees minimum rainfall. The Walla Walla Valley is known for its four major soils types: cobblestone river gravels, loess, deep silts, and thin silt sprinkled over weathered basalt. Together, these different components form the unique Walla Walla Valley terroir.
