A Taste of Northwest USA

A Taste of Northwest USA

Growing Reputation
Washington and Oregon are important wine regions in the USA, especially the Northwest USA. Besides California, Washington, and Oregon are growing in reputation and produce quality wines to match their reputations.


     Notable Regions


USA’s second largest wine producing region. Most of the vineyards are located on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains where there is little precipitation.


Some of Oregon’s vineyards are at the same latitude as France’s Bourgogne wine region. Both regions are famed for their Pinot Noir wines. Pinot Noir makes up over 70% of Oregon’s wine production.
