Washington State's is one of the most diverse wine growing regions in the world. One side of the state you have Seattle, where it "always rains", and the other you have 300 plus days of sunshine with prime grape growing. Lava flows, ice floods, and volcanic eruptions helped shaped this state, which makes for some amazing wine!  Washington State Wine & The Missoula Floods
