  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • August is here -- along with warm, steamy weather for most of the country. For some that means switching over to chilled cocktails or beer. What it should really mean for wine drinkers is carefully selecting wines that are well made, delicious, value driven and refreshing. The last thing anyone wants to sip in hot weather is a big, bloated and p... Read More

  • Columbia Valley, Columbia Gorge, and Walla Walla Valley: a triumvirate of outstanding wine producing regions with a fascinating twist. While there are numerous ways in which these three areas are vastly different from each other, they have one key similarity. Their acreage spans across both Washington and Oregon states. I spent a week traveling ... Read More

  • Trip summary of Columbia Gorge and more...Phelps Creek: Don't be put off that this winery is a bit off the beaten path and located at a golf course. They make 6 whites, merlot, syrah, pinot and a sparkling wine--about 5,00 cases total. The winemaker (female) is French. That combined with some New Zealand experience makes a leaner style wine, low... Read More

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

  • I purchased your 2007 Washington Hills Chardonnay. Upon tasting it tasted like water and vrery little chardonnay. My daughter in law tasted it the next day and said the same thing. We both drink chardonnay. Any idea why this would taste this way? The bar code is 0 80438010901.

  • I have been purchasing their box Chardonnay upunitl recently when they changed their bladder source. The new nozzle is almost impossible to use on upper shelves of your refrigerator. I left a voice mail message to them but never received a reply. I now use Monthaven instead.
