Columbia Basin / Snake River

Columbia Basin Printable Map

This is where the Columbia, Yakima and Snake rivers meet. The area surrounding the Tri-Cities, which includes the broad hills bordering each side of the Snake River, is benefited by a good climate and ample irrigation. Several large vineyards have achieved reputations for excellent Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and other varietals.
