With precious few examples - and even fewer drinkable examples - nearly all wines produced in the U.S. are grown upon vines that were originally “immigrants.” If not for these European immigrants, we would be forced to accompany our favorite meals with a glass or two of barely aged Scuppernong, or for the truly adventurous, Durango. Not that these wines are truly awful, just reasonably so.
Join us with Mike Scott who will lead us through eight wines, starting with comparisons between old and new world versions (all from Washington) of several wines.
Our final flight will be all wines from the Northwest, bit featuring imported vine stock.
