Columbia Gorge Wines are some of the most unique and delicious in America, due to the diverse microclimates, volcanic soils, and passionate small-batch producers.
Columbia Gorge is a picturesque wine region located in the Pacific Northwest, straddling the border between Oregon and Washington. Stretching for over 80 miles along the scenic Columbia River, this area boasts breathtaking landscapes of rolling hills, cliffs, and waterfalls that make it one of America’s most stunning wine destinations.
The region is divided into two main areas: The Western Columbia Gorge AVA in Oregon and The Columbia Valley AVA in Washington State. Each sub-region has its unique microclimates, soils, and grape varieties that produce an array of tasty wines.
Columbia Gorge has become renowned for its small-batch wineries committed to sustainable practices who prioritise quality over quantity. Our Columbia Gorge Wines are all created by producers using traditional methods combined with modern technology to create exceptional wines that capture the essence of their land and distinct terroir. They use sustainable farming practices and have mastered their craft over generations. This commitment results in richly flavoured wines with complex aromas and tastes.
One of our producers in this region is Kiona Winery. This family-owned business has been producing award-winning wines for the last 40 years. They use sustainable farming practices to cultivate their grapes, ensuring that their products are both delicious and environmentally friendly.
