I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1989 from Southern California, at the time, my beverages of choice were light beer and cheap sparkling wine.  Thankfully, through much exploration and tasting of the growing wine areas and AVAs to be found in Washington state, my palette has  welcomed the beauty of the wines that this region has to offer.

I am still learning and experiencing the varietals that grow here.  By no means do I declare myself a professional ‘wino’, but I do know what I like when I sip it, and after all, that is all one needs to know.  Wine appreciation is a subjective study, one lovely glass at a time.  What’s in your glass?
