Welcome to my latest installment of Wine Writer Confidential.
It’s a busy time of tours, tastings, and quality quaffs!
Celebrate Walla Walla Wine 2017
As a student of Burgundy, my palate gravitates towards Pinot, with exceptions, such as The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, where Syrah roars with savage, full-throated, unfettered abandon, and where I just returned from a media tour of Walla Walla.
You’ll be hearing more from me about this trip in future publications as well as here. Many thanks to Heather Unwin and Ashley Riggs of the Walla Walla Wine Alliance for orchestrating this brilliant tour.
