About This Wine
The Pacific Crest Trail spans over 2,600 miles.
Trekking up the entirety of the United States’ West Coast, the trail criss-crosses some of the country’s best winegrowing regions. In Washington, the trail follows the Cascade Mountains through the state, and to the east of this range you’ll find the rugged, fertile lands of Washington wine country.
Vines thrive under the rain shadow of the Cascades, producing powerful fruit at elevations of up to 3,000 feet. With its wines, Pacific Crest Wine Co. seeks to capture the sense of beauty and adventure defined by the Pacific Crest Trail.
