If you are a subscriber to The Economist (or online subscriber) you will be able to read the article, "The French Touch", May 18th edition. The article tells of the history of Walla Walla's winemaking and the French winemakers, who have recently settled in the valley, and their influence on the area's wine.
If you aren't familar with The Economist, it is a weekly magazine focusing on international politics and business news and opinion. They have offices in New York, London and San Francisco, and it just so happens my "honey man" (at The Economist, they call him Steve) is one of their journalists. If you can't get to your favorite news stand or magazine shop, you can subscribe online.
