“It all starts in the vineyard. If the vineyard team and Mother Nature all work in conjunction and do their job right, winemakers already have great wine before they even touch it.”

— Brittany Komm, Sagemoor Vineyards



There are 2,933 acres of planted vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA), which spans Southeastern Washington and Northeastern Oregon.

The top five varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Syrah (18%), Merlot (16%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Malbec (4%). Within the Walla Walla Valley AVA lies The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA, which was approved in early 2015. The distinguishing feature of The Rocks District is its soil, which consists primarily of dark-colored basalt cobblestones. Syrah accounts for almost half of the planted vineyards (45%), and Cabernet Sauvignon is second (24%).

Vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley will continue to expand for years to come, further positioning it as one of the top wine grape growing regions in the world.

“We want our vines to outlive us and be sustainable and strong for generations to come. That expectation requires daily oversight and a commitment to sustainability and healthy plants.”
