Happy hump day,
This week we bring you a regional review of four Washington State reds! Trailing only California, Washington is the USA’s second-biggest wine-producing state and these four wineries are amongst the best pours around.
Surprisingly still a relatively newcomer in the New World wine world, Washington’s history of winemaking actually goes back to grape growing in the early part of the 19th century. The inception started at Hudson Bay Company's vineyard at Fort Vancouver. Following prohibition, the burgeoning wine business was spurred by the population of European immigrants, many from wine-loving countries like Italy, France, and Germany. The 20th century brought big growers in the 60s and 70s, with names like Chateau Ste. Michelle, and newcomers such as Quilceda Creek and Leonetti. Today there are hundreds of boutique producers who rival some of the best names in the Napa Valley. So this week we'll showcase four such labels from probably the most sought-after sub-AVA, known as Columbia Valley's Red Mountain appellation. It's a great study in value-driven wine, but more importantly, the undeniable quality coming out of the region. And even without the value proposition, WA State is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to polished, high-expression wines with terror and real substance! Join us. It all starts tonight.
Believe it or not, Valentines Day is just around the corner. We have a very limited and always, very special special set of offerings. Stay tuned for new offerings coming soon or visit our 20 Degrees Chocolate boutique in South End.
In addition, WATCH for updates on our PARK ROAD new store project, slated for opening this FALL! Interior demo complete! Our plans are in-the-works and we look forward to sharing all the fun when construction starts...
