Snoqualmie Vineyards

Snoqualmie Vineyards Finally, wine lovers around the country can savor a wine that Northwest locals often describe as "quintessential Northwest." One of the state's first premium wineries, Snoqualmie witnessed demand for Columbia Valley wines grow beyond available grape supply. Rather than compete with the larger wineries for grapes, Snoqualmie chose to work with its existing vineyards and limit its distribution primarily to the Northwest. But as the call for Columbia Valley wines grew in the mid-1990s, Washington vineyard owners began planting in earnest. And with the new vineyards came new possibilities for Snoqualmie. National expansion begain in 2000. Today, a bottle of Snoqualmie can grace dinner tables from coast to coast as the winery finally enjoys national distribution.
