Washington Wine Country: Wahluke Slope

Find out what makes Wahluke Slope unique and get recipes for pairing with wines from the area.

East of the Cascade mountains lies the sunny and parched side of the state where the days are warm and the nights are cool--near perfect conditions for creating "balanced" wines.




One of the most recently established appellations, Wahluke Slope is situated on a south-facing plateau in the center of the Columbia Valley where the south-racing Columbia River suddenly makes a quick dip back to the north before bending back again to the south. The warm Wahluke Slope appellation favors Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon among the reds; Riesling, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc among the whites. This appellation is one of the warmest in Washington.
