Wine Club April 2013
Wines are available for pick up 4/6/13. Remember you receive 10% off a bottle and 15% off a solid case off of these wine club wines for the whole month.
While it wasn’t wholly intentional, this month’s wines all hail from the Columbia Valley AVA; unsurprising, as it covers 30% of the state and 99% of Washington grape production occurs there. Low levels of precipitation mean that irrigation is vital to Columbia AVA wines, giving the vintner greater control of the sugar, and aromatic phenol concentration in the grapes. The soil is essentially a 250ft deep gravel bed with intermingled with volcanic soil and a mixture of sand and fine silt. This soil was laid down by a combination of glacial action and a series of massive glacial lake floods towards the end of the last ice age (combined volume of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, massive), resulting in highly fertile, well drained locations for vineyards.
Hope you enjoy!
