The State of Washington is home to an impressive breed of winemaker. Many have spent years, even decades, in other parts of the world, honing their craft. They come back to Washington because they realize the potential. The relatively uncrowded arena allows the creative some elbow room and freedom to experiment. Their love and respect for Washington grapes, and their willingness to accept the challenge of hailing from the United States’ number two wine producer (in numbers only), fuels their desire to succeed.
