The Walla Walla Valley is an American Viticultural Area (AVA) located in Southeastern Washintion and Northeastern Oregon. The Valley is a beautiful oasis amid the vast sagebrush desert that rolls across most of America’s northwest interior. The name Walla Walla means “many waters,” and it highlights the rivers and aquifers that provide so abundantly for those who discover this place—from the earliest native peoples and French fur trappers to Oregon Trail pioneers and Victorian wheat barons. For each wave of arrivals, the Walla Walla Valley presents a remarkable agricultural bounty. Our wine industry continues this rich legacy, and you can explore its different facets through the links listed above.
