Los Rocosos Vineyard
The Rocks District AVA of Walla Walla
We are adding a second Walla Walla vineyard in 2023 – a Rocks District Grenache. Los Rocosos Vineyard lies in the eastern portion of The Rocks District AVA. Los Rocosos translates to The Rockies.
The Rocks District is a sub-AVA that lies within the greater Walla Walla Valley AVA. It is situated entirely in Oregon. (The Walla Walla Valley AVA encompasses both Oregon and Washington lands.) It is named after, and was established because of the predominant soil characteristic of the area – large quantities of water-rounded rocks from the historic beds of the Walla Walla River. The deep, well-drained soils provide an intensity to the fruit flavors.
Soil Classification: Freewater Very Cobbly Stone, 0 to 3% Slope.
