Taste Washington 2015 Strategery (Which by the way is not a word.)
Taste Washington  is a wine tasting extravaganza and it's not for the faint of heart. (In that spirit I have reprized a post from a few years ago to hopefully provide some advice on how to navigate the event.) With 200ish Washington wineries in attendance, ...

Whenever I'm out in the Yakima Valley I always look to the south side of the river along highway 82 at those beautiful rolling hills and think, "those are the Horse Heaven Hills." And sometimes I even say it out loud, if someone is with me in the car. I suppose it makes me feel smart or informed ...

Gorgeous in the Gorge

Chelan Celebrates With Bubbles
From Marty Sparks(ling wine) Bubbles! If you thought that sparkling wine was only for ringing in the New Year, toasting newlyweds or christening yachts you should think again. Sparkling wine is great throughout the year for all sorts of occasions.  Pop the ...
Sparkling wine is great throughout the year for all sorts of occasions. Pop the cork on some bubbly and watch that magical sound bring a smile to anyone's face. Not only do bubbles bring fun to the party they also bring great acidity that makes them an excellent pairing for all kinds of food.

Feels Like Family: Jasper Sisco Wines
In May of 2012 one of our writers Megan visited with a guy named Justin Paul Russell who had come to the Willamette Valley from the Alabama with a dream of making Oregon Pinot Noir. Two years have past and Justin has successfully launched Jasper Sisco with ...
Jasper's story, sorry, Justin's story is illustrative of the kind of community that the Willamette Valley has always been and frankly remains, in spite of it's growing stature in the wine world. The California wine giants' land grab hasn't done any damage the family fabric of Oregon's Pinot ...

Washington's New Balance: Woodinville Shows the Way
It would be technically correct to say that the Washington wine industry's roots were set down in Woodinville all those years ago when Chateau Ste Michelle established their Woodinville location as a kind of wine destination. It has become the state's groun...
Woodinville however remains at the forefront. Today there's a new crop of Washington winemakers; making their wine in the warehouses of Woodinville and it's some of the most exciting stuff going on in the state. (This man's opinion anyways.) I liken what's going on with these new producers in ...
