Washington Wine Country

Map of Washington

Though a world away from California’s Wine Country, the legacy is continued. Washington is far more than foggy afternoons and wind-blown coastlines—a diversity of climate, geography, and passion have established this state as one of the most popular new winemaking regions, with a laid-back lifestyle that rivals that of the neighbors to the south.

TOP TIPS FOR WASHINGTON

  1. Pick your preference: temperate rainforests line the coast, but mountainous grasslands are abundant in the east.

  2. Don’t worry about bringing all your gear–even the smallest towns will have outlets to fulfill outdoor needs.

  3. Spend some time getting to know the locals--they’re a wealth of information, and are thrilled to share their state.

When to Go

On the coast, always count on rain, even in the summer. East of the cascades, however, not-so-much, but winters can still be very cold.
