Inspired by Yakima Valley’s Wine Culture

Soul of the Vine

In celebration of Washington Wine Month, Yakima Valley growers have produced a four and a half minute video highlighting the significant touch points that make the Yakima Valley AVA the perfect “painters pallette” for Washington winemakers.

A truly inspiring video. Well done.

The Washington wine industry itself has grown up with the Yakima wine region. The oldest producing vines in the state are here, planted by wine pioneer Dr. Walter Clore. These beginnings have served the entire state, making the video a perfect complement to any wines or wine programs being featured during Washington Wine Month, March 2014.

Wine Yakima Valley is a member organization of wineries and wine grape growers whose mission is to strengthen awareness of, and attract wine enthusiasts to, Yakima Valley’s Wine Country. Located in south-central Washington, the Yakima Valley is a scenic and leisurely 150-mile drive from Seattle, Spokane, or Portland. The valley is the original, largest, and most diverse wine region in Washington, producing half of the state’s wine. Located on the same parallel as the famous Bordeaux region of France, the Yakima Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area) provides a nearly perfect location to grow wine grapes.
