Cheeseheads make good!

It is no secret we love Washington State wines. We won an award for the best Washington State wine list from an out of state restaurant this year. While some of the wines are quite expensive (that's a reference to you Quilceda Creek), the price to quality is well above ...

Greg Brewer and Diatom

Greg Brewer is taking Chardonnay is a different direction. Everyone knows the big, buttery style and a growing number are moving to the "unoaked" version. Greg has done a little of both but with the tiny production Diatom wines, he is clearly moving in a direction all his own. Diatom ...

Oregon and Carbon Neutral

Soter Vineyard is one of our favorites and a leader in going Carbon Neutral! If you have not tried the sparkling from Tony Soter, you are missing out on a true gem from the USA. I would rather drink a Soter Rose than almost any Champagne, expecially given the price. ...

 

John Hawley and 100 year old vines

Hawley Winery has a great series of videos posted through YouTube as well as their website. We thought is was a great opportunity to show everyone a 100 years old Zin vineyard. In our humble opinion, Dry Creek and Zin go hand in hand!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-B3GKeCscM
