Columbia Crest Winery
In 1983 Columbia Crest opened its doors in the heart of Washington state’s Horse Heaven Hills. Nestled alongside the Columbia River in eastern Washington, Columbia Crest is the Northwest’s largest winery and one of the world’s most highly acclaimed.
Columbia Valley vineyards are in Eastern Washington. This region is mostly dry with less precipitation from the surrounding Cascade Mountains. Vineyards are 100% drip irrigation. This, combined with the low water-holding capacity of the soil, allow for precise control of the vines.
