The Association is organized to promote and encourage the development and growth of the grape wine industry in Clark County, Washington.

This will be accomplished through the following:

1. By fostering a positive business climate for the wine industry in the region by working cooperatively with local, county, and state leaders in order to support and further develop sustainable, responsible, and environmentally friendly enterprises related to wine making, viticulture, and tasting room experiences;

2. By participating and collaborating in general wine industry initiatives and wine tasting initiatives and wine promotions, which encourage tourism and the expansion of wine related businesses in the region;

3. By working toward the development of an organizational structure (a nonprofit) that facilitates the successful and sustainable growth of the wine industry and wine  related businesses in the area;

4. By providing education and support services for people involved in viticulture, and oenology, and informing the public about viticulture and oenology;

5. By seeking funds from the public and governments to support the organization’s programs and services;

6. By fostering and facilitating, in cooperation with growers and wineries in the region, the development of a cooperative initiative to research, and establish a viable American Viticultural Area in Southwest Washington.

Valentine’s Day Weekend
Wine and Chocolate Weekend!
February 11 & 12, 2017
12pm – 6pm

Skip the traffic and stay local for Valentine’s Day. Join your participating Southwest Washington wineries for a weekend of Wine and Chocolate. Each winery will have a different chocolatier and pairing menu.

Each participating winery will be open 12:00pm to 6:00pm on February 11th and 12th.

For more details on the participating wineries please visit www.swwawine.com then for specific details as to what each winery intends to offer please visit the individual wineries websites or Facebook pages.

Just minutes from Portland, the Southwest Washington wine region is home to nearly two-dozen family-owned, boutique wineries and vineyards. With an average production of only 1000 cases per year, winemakers are still frequently in the tasting room.

Nestled between the North bank of the Columbia River and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, our climate and soil are similar to Burgundy. The region excels at growing traditional European grapes such as Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay, as well as lesser-known varietals like Golubok, Marechal-Foch and Zweigelt-Rebe. Grapes sourced from warmer climates nearby round out the tasting experience. Red, white, rose, sparking and dessert wines offer something for every palate. Come taste, learn and enjoy with us!

Scenic hiking and other activities make it easy to plan an eventful day or a full weekend in this emerging wine region.
