Wine Adviser Washington finally making pinot to be proud of Despite some dabbling in making pinot in Washington state, the efforts have never really broken into the competitive ranks — until recently. Thanks to better clones, siting and winemaking, the state is finally turning the corner and starting to produce some quality pinot.
Wine Society Of India OVER THE years the occasional bottle of Washington-grown pinot noir has surfaced. Linc and Joan Wolverton had some early success at their Salishan winery and vineyard, planted in 1971 just outside La Center (which might more aptly be named La Middle of Nowhere) in southwest Washington.
India Winery At the same time, on the other side of the Cascades, in the Columbia Gorge, Charles Henderson (at Mont Elise winery) was also planting pinot noir, as were Margaret and Dr. William McAndrew, at Celilo. These early pioneers were perhaps inspired by the words of chronicler Leon Adams. Adams authored "The Wines of America," which first appeared around that time. Though Washington and Oregon get few pages in the book, the timing of Adams' research was spot on. He was an eyewitness to the birth of the modern era of wine-grape growing and wine production in both states.
WOODINVILLE, Wash. - It's called "the crush" - the time when grapes get squeezed for their juice, which later becomes wine.
Wine To India This year, you could call it "the crunch" because, with a late running season, the pressure is on to get grapes out of the vineyards in Eastern Washington and into wineries like DeLelille Cellars in Woodinville .
Wine Society Of India "When you're two weeks behind, you can't afford to get any further behind," says Chris Peterson, DeLille's winemaker. Like most of Washington's wines, DeLille makes a high-end product. A bottle can range from $32 to over $100.

Wine rookies and connoisseurs alike will enjoy popular, fun activities such as grape stomping, wine making lessons, and even helping with the grape harvest.
India Wines “We call it sharing the grape,” says Don Crofut of Crofut Family Winery near Prior Lake. “And it’s a great activity for getting new visitors to come out and sample our wines.” One of the longest wine trails is the Great River Road Wine Trail, which includes ten wineries along the Mississippi River in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Not to be outdone by the “mighty Mississipp,” wineries along the Minnesota River offer the “Sips of History” tour. Visitors on this tour are encouraged to explore several southern Minnesota communities that have been inspired by the ancient Minnesota River and its adventurous pioneers. Another option is the Heartland Wine Trail featuring seven wineries from Waconia to Clara City. This tour includes a diverse group of wineries that offer the chance to taste different styles of wine made from the same grape varieties. Minnesota’s first wine trail, the Three Rivers Trail, features five of the state’s oldest wineries all located within the Saint Croix, Mississippi and Cannon River Valleys.
Wines In India Families can see how wine is made, discover the beautiful vineyard scenery and learn more about Minnesota’s award-winning wines.
