As the global wine industry reinvents itself for twenty firstand#150;century palates, Washington is poised to become as important and influential as California on the world stage. National and international attention has brought interest in the stateand#8217;s wines to an all-time high. Yet, in just the past few years, a tidal wave of change has rolled over the stateand#8217;s wine industry. To keep wine enthusiasts thoroughly up to date, Paul Gregutt has now completely revised and expanded his critically acclaimed guide to Washingtonand#8217;s best grapes, vineyards, wines, winemakers, and wineries. With twice as many winery and vineyard profiles, updated tasting notes, and new recommended producers for each grape variety, this edition of Washington Wines and Wineries will continue to be the definitive reference on the subject.
