Why Washington Wines?
Washington State, one of the top wine regions in the world with almost 500 wineries, produces award-winning premium wines from grapes grown in the unique terroir of central and eastern Washington. With a climate suited to wine grape growing, including longer days and more sun than other wine regions, it's no wonder that Washington state wines consistently receive ratings of 90 and above from wine critics and the wine media.
Washington produces both white and red wines, primarily Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. But Washington winemakers also craft white wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Viognier; and red wines such as Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir.
Love Washington Wine, launched in 2006, offers small Washington state wineries a place to join together online to sell their wines to wine enthusiasts looking for unique, sought-after wines to complement their lifestyle. Love Washington Wine, created by Confluent Data Systems, Inc. and Go Wine L.L.C., allows small Washington State wineries to self-distribute their wines to direct shipping states in the United States.
