The warmest wine region in the US state of Washington is the Wahluke Slope AVA (American Viticultural Area) located in Grant County. It lies entirely within the larger Columbia Valley AVA. The fast-flowing Columbia river forms the western and southern boundaries of Wahluke Slope, with the Hanford Reach National Monument bordering the appellation to the east. This isolated south-facing plateau stretches north up into the foothills of the Saddle Mountains, reaching 1480ft (450m) above sea level.
Wahluke Slope is the only AVA in the Pacific Northwest that is a single geological landform, with repetitive flooding having created a large alluvial fan. Its gravelly, free-draining, sandy soils require controlled irrigation, which in turn controls vine vigor and grape quality. The arid climate means that winemakers can consistently turn out quality wines over successive vintages.
