Grape growing in the Columbia Gorge AVA climate, temperature (winter; summer), and rain vary from the eastern end of the Columbia Gorge AVA to its western end. The Columbia Gorge AVA western boundary is approximately 24 miles east of the crest of the Cascades. As the marine air reaches the Columbia Gorge AVA rainfall is about 36 inches per year. Where that air exits the Gorge to the east, it will leave less than 10 inches per year. As the climate warms heading east, the vineyard plantings change from those grown in Burgundy and Alsace to those from Bordeaux, Provence and Italy. At the Columbia Gorge’s eastern border, the climate has become one of the Columbia Valley AVA… a continental high desert climate. The diversity of wine grapes grown in the Columbia River Gorge are unlikely to be matched elsewhere is such a small stretch of land.

Who hasn’t heard of the ancient, Neolithic structure situated in the county of Wiltshire, high on Salisbury Plain in England? Its massive stones, broken and fallen from age, have stirred the imagination of man for centuries. There is nothing quite like this famous prehistoric monument anywhere else in the world. Or is there?
Near the town site of Maryhill, Washington, three miles east of Maryhill Museum of Art, stands a replica of Stonehenge built by Samuel Hill. Dedicated in 1918 to the servicemen of Klickitat County, Washington who died in the service of their country during the Great War, Hill’s Stonehenge Memorial stands as a monument to heroism and peace.
