GENIUS IN A BOTTLE
Despite their relatively recent entry onto the domestic wine scene, it has proven virtually impossible to slow the tide of ascendency of Washington wines. This majestic region and the forward-thinking Vignerons who call it home continue to hone their skills and fine-tune the vinous products of this special Terroir. The Columbia Valley’s viticultural ball is insuppressibly rolling, leaving converted sommeliers, awed critics, and satisfied consumers in its wake.
Washington Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are a microcosm of this liquid roller coaster, as these two most popular white wine varieties have become practically synonymous with the best that the Columbia River appellation can do with its white wines. Take these unstoppable forces and their unconstrainable momentum, blend them together, and what do you get? A white wine that you can’t keep bottled up.
