Washington wine news for December 6, 2009

A WAwineman historical footnote…

I can only try to justify the recent (and latest) explosion of new wineries in Washington State by guessing it takes about a year to clear all the regulations, financing, inspections, construction, purchasing and coordination of setting up a working, functioning winery, especially after what the economy’s been like this year. An ominous sign forboding for next year?
