Established in 2001, Cougar Crest Estate Winery is located in the Walla Walla Valley of Washington State. Walla Walla Valley is recognized as the premier place to grow grapes in Washington, and Cougar Crest is one of the finest wineries in the region.
The agency that regulates Washington wineries considers estate vineyards so important they have a legal definition that must be strictly adhered to, in order to use the term “Estate”. Their goal and ours is to make sure that Cougar Crest is the steward of the land and of the winery.

Cougar Hills is located a stone's throw from the site of the original Seven Hills Vineyard planted in the 1970's that began the Walla Walla legacy of quality vineyards.
Noble Rock is located in The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA. This new sub-appellation of the Walla Walla Valley is unique because of the ubiquitous river rock that saturates the soil profile from the surface to way below the roots of the plants. Our Syrah from this vineyard has the savory, gamey characteristics that this AVA is known for.".
Rock Bottom is located in the western part of the Walla Walla Valley AVA, Rock Bottom is on relatively flat ground a quarter mile north of Cougar Hills Vineyard. The soil here is sandy loam with a gravelly, rocky base that shows on the surface in a few places. The soil is faster draining and dries out more quickly than at Cougar Hills, requiring more diligence for monitoring irrigation, but yielding highly concentrated fruit. This part of the Walla Walla Valley only gets 8 - 10 inches of rainfall per year, the perfect location for controlling the amount of water available to the vines, and hence grape quality. Planted to several different varieties this vineyard produces grapes used in all of our core portfolio wines.
