At just about over 4,000 acres (of which 2,700 are planted), Red Mountain AVA (American Viticultural Area) is Washington State’s smallest, but arguably most prestigious, AVA. Formerly an uninhabited stretch of land that seemed inhospitable to grape growing, it has become the epicenter for high-quality fruit in Washington. While Cabernet Sauvignon comprises a large percentage of plantings, anything from Grenache to Sangiovese to Albariño is finding a home here. It has only been an official AVA for just over 20 years, but its meteoric rise is well-justified. Here’s why you should pay attention to Red Mountain and its wines.
