With just 37.3 acres planted at approval, 1-13-2012, Naches Heights is the smallest planted AVA in Washington state. Encompassing 13,254 acres as an AVA it has considerable room to expand plantings and 80 new acres are planned. It is estimated that 10,000 acres of the AVA are suitable for planting. Naches Heights was unaffected by the ice age floods that dominated the area some 15,000 years ago due to it's elevation and location. Ranging from 1,200 to 2,100 feet in elevation, higher than many Washington appellations, the soils continue to be wind blown and of much older orientation. Soil deposition continues to this day. Rainfall and heat are plentiful providing the needed resources to cultivate quality wine grapes.
