Washington's Wine Culture

Washington-Wine.JPGEater National examines Washington winemaking and compares our state's viticulture to an awkward teenager. "While California is busy throwing footballs and ass-grabbing, and Oregon is content reading poetry and doing yoga, Washington is in its bedroom sketching anime cartoons and listening to Smashing Pumpkins, searching for itself." Washington, which has gained a new winery "virtually ten times an hour for ten years straight" doesn't have a signature grape, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Both the awkward teenager schtick and the state's versatility means Washington is poised to astound the world with something awesome and unexpected. [Eater National]
