Once again, Washington State Wines are on display on the ever-so-popular Wine Library!
In episode #380 Gary Vay-ner-chuk sippy-sips four Washington State wines and three of them are from Walla Walla! Woodward Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series - 2004, Nicholas Cole Cellars Camille - 2003 (Red Meritage), Cougar Crest Reserve Syrah - 2003 and Chateau Ste Michelle Ethos Syrah - 2004 from Woodenville.
Yesterday, I was catching up on a few food and wine industry magazines and the very first thing I noticed in the magazines that none of them mentioned any food products or restaurants from the State of Washington. And most important I noticed in the back of the magazines where they reviewed wines, all the wines reviewed were from California and New York. Where were the wines from Washington State? Just because we are second in the nation when it comes to wine production, doesn't mean we have to act like we are in second place. We should be on top! And thanks to people like Gary V for recognizing this. Hey Washington Wine Commission, it's good to know that we have Gary V on our side.
