Nested within the Walla Walla Valley AVA, The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater resides entirely on the Oregon side of the Valley and is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries (96%) have been fixed by virtue of a single soil series (Freewater Series) and a single land form - an alluvial fan deposited by the Walla Walla River after rushing down the Blue Mountains.
Currently, there are 338 planted wine-grape acres, 144 acres in development. Top varietals are Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache.
Long regarded as a prime agriculture region, especially for orchard crops, this area of Milton-Freewater began to see establishment of vineyards in the late 1990s. The wines produced by those early adopters soon became legendary, achieving both high scores from national wine publications and highly-prized by collectors.
Since the TTB approval of the appellation status in February 2015, this tiny 5.9 square mile (3767 acre) AVA has seen increased investment in land acquisition.
