Snake River Valley AVA

The Snake River Valley AVA encompasses two large counties in Eastern Oregon, Baker County and Malheur County, but is primarily located in Idaho.

The region’s climate is unique among AVAs in Oregon as the average temperature is relatively cool and rainfall is low, creating a shorter growing season.

Current production is led by hardy grapes such as Riesling, Gew├╝rztraminer, and Chardonnay but the climate supports different types of grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and also lends itself extremely well to the production of ice wine.
