In our humble estimation, Washington state provides a delicious foil against the high price of Napa Valley and or Bordelais offerings for lovers of top quality claret or claret-inspired wines, but with the added advantage of own-rooted vines. It may also be observed that most wherever one can successfully grow high-quality apples, one can also successfully grow fine wine grapes.
