Did you know that Washington's high desert terroir along the Columbia River, with its abundant sunshine, wide temperature swings, and absence of vine disease has become home to one of the finest wine regions in the nation. Washington plants their grapes on the east side of the Cascade mountains, away from that ever-present rain cloud that sits along the coast. The result – fleshy, ripe, complex wines with a true sense of terroir. It's time to get to know Washington state wines!

Remember, it’s not the weather that dictates the wine so much as the food. You won’t want to miss our favorite new picks, perfect to kick off the coming warm, Spring weather and the barbeque season!
