Few wine writers today know the Washington wine story better than Andy Perdue, Seattle Times wine columnist and co-founder of the on-line news site, Great Northwest Wine.  His cover story in the Pacific Northwest magazine section of the Sunday, November 3, 2013, issue of the Seattle Times appropriately entitled, “How Woodinville Became a Player in Washington Wine Country,” does a fantastic job explaining how Woodinville Wine Country became a Washington wine tasting destination.  Andy’s story includes an interview with our own Mike Januik, whose perspective on the Woodinville wine scene spans multiple decades.

If you have ever marveled at how Woodinville came to the forefront of the Washington wine industry, now more than 100 wineries strong, or if you have wondered what else the area offers besides great wines, this article is worth a read.
