List of American Viticultural Areas

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

An American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a designated wine grape-growing region in the United States distinguishable by geographic features, with boundaries defined by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), United States Department of the Treasury.[1] As of 2012, there were 206 recognized AVAs—several of which are shared by two or more states.

Yakima Valley AVA Wine region
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Yakima Valley AVA was the first American Viticultural Area established within Washington State, gaining the recognition in 1983. Part of the larger Columbia Valley AVA, Yakima Valley AVA is home to more than 11,000 acres (45 km2) of vineyards, giving the area the largest concentration of wineries and vineyards in the state of Washington.

[Ed's Note: As an aside, the timing for creating the Yakima Valley Viticultural
Area was good. Investors have been buying investment grade productive farmland in the early  decades of the 21st century. Values are holding their
own or increasing. Management has been a positive thing.]

New York Wine


New York wine refers to wine made from grapes grown in the U.S. state of New York. New York ranks third in grape production by volume after California and Washington. Eighty-three percent of New York's grape area is Vitis labrusca varieties (mostly Concord). The rest is split almost equally between Vitis vinifera and French hybrids.

Amazon producing wine?

Actually, Amazon now says it’s not developing its own wines
A new wine label called Next appeared on Amazon.com in late June

by Jason Del Rey June 6th, 2017

Update: Last night, I asked Amazon to clarify the relationship between itself and an Oregon winemaker after I saw a blog post on Forbes.com with the headline “Amazon's First Wine, Called NEXT, Makes Its Debut.”

The Amazon spokesperson pointed me to a press release, which stated that the new wine brand was “the first wine ever developed from conception to release with Amazon Wine.” But 11 hours after publication, Amazon now says that the winery’s press release was incorrect (it has now been updated) and that Amazon had no hand in the development of the wine; Amazon.com is simply a retail sales channel for the new wine brand at launch.
