Join us for a journey of wines from the Pacific Northwest!
Washington State wouldn’t be the splendor that it is without its magnificent neighbor of the Pacific Ocean, the Cascade Mountains, and the beautiful city of Seattle. While it rains for most of the year in Seattle, the Cascade Mountains provide a literal barrier to the damp environment, which is inhospitable for grapes. Because of the Cascade’s protection, most of Washington State from the east of the mountain range is hot and dry.
