Red Mountain

Nestled in the heart of Washington State, the Red Mountain American Viticultural Area (AVA) has garnered a reputation as one of the premier wine regions in the United States. Declared an AVA in 2001, Red Mountain has since captivated wine enthusiasts with its unique terroir and exceptional grape varieties.

Located in Benton County, Washington, Red Mountain AVA spans over 4,040 acres of picturesque landscapes. Situated in the eastern part of the state, the region benefits from a continental climate with warm, sunny summers and cool, breezy nights. The area experiences a remarkable diurnal temperature variation, which helps create ideal conditions for grape cultivation.

The soil profile of Red Mountain AVA is diverse, comprising well-drained, sandy loam and gravelly soils. The region owes its distinctiveness to the abundance of basalt, sand, and gravel deposits left behind by ancient volcanic activity. These mineral-rich soils contribute to the grapes’ unique character and flavor profile, giving them depth and complexity.

Red Mountain AVA boasts a remarkable array of grape varieties grown within its borders. The region is renowned for its exceptional red wines, particularly those crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah grapes. The warm days and cool nights allow the grapes to ripen slowly, resulting in wines with concentrated flavors, intense aromas, and robust tannins. The high-quality fruit produced in Red Mountain is a testament to the region’s commitment to excellence in winemaking.

When it comes to the taste of wines produced in Red Mountain AVA, expect nothing short of excellence. The wines from this region showcase bold flavors, with notes of dark berries, cassis, black cherry, and hints of spice. They exhibit great structure, firm acidity, and a remarkable ability to age gracefully. The combination of unique soil, climate, and meticulous winemaking practices results in wines of exceptional quality and character.
