YAKIMA VALLEY WINE TASTING REGION

Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail is located within the Rattlesnake Hills AVA in the Yakima Valley. With its rich soils, long days and warm climate, the Rattlesnake Hills AVA produces world-class wine grapes making some of Washington’s finest wines. Most of our tasting rooms are located on estate vineyards offering picturesque views complete with the snow-capped peaks of Mount Adams and Mount Rainier.

RATTLESNAKE HILLS AVA

WINE GRAPE GROWING REGION

Several factors distinguish the wines made from grapes grown in the Rattlesnake Hils that can’t be found in nearby growing regions. Temperature: The Rattlesnake Hills has 2683-2870 annual degree days (each degree that a day’s mean temperature is above 50°F is called a degree-day), which is temperate compared to the surrounding regions. Soils: Fine, shallow silt loam soils left over from the ice age are the norm here. Climate: The Rattlesnake Hills ridgeline shields the grapevines from the freezing polar air from Canada that can severely damage or kill the vines.
