Candy Mountain

One of Washington States' newest AVA's, Candy Mountains south-facing slope sits just southeast of the Red Mountain AVA. At near 900 acres, it's also the smallest AVA in the state. With outstanding growing conditions, it is expected to produce rich fruit-forward grapes with nice minerality and tannins.
