Yesterday I told you about 10 wineries not to miss at Taste Washington 2012 from A to K. Now it’s time to tackle the second half of the alphabet. So without any further delay, get your glass and hustle up to these tables:

  1. Long Shadows Vintners: For finding out what Randy Dunn does with Washington Cabernet.
  2. Maison Bleue: For some of the most exciting Rhone-style red and white wines.
  3. Mark Ryan Winery: For the chance to say hello to one of the best people in the business and taste two great blends.
  4. McKinley Springs: For one of the best values in Syrah.
  5. Reininger Winery: For trying more Carmenere.
  6. Syncline: For seeing me finally getting to taste their sparkling wine.
  7. Tranche Cellars: For a crisp, dry rosé.
  8. Treveri Cellars: For some palate-cleansing bubbles.
  9. Waters Winery: For tasting one of Washington’s top Syrahs.

    I might suggest adding Dunham to that list, tasted their wines in Portland earlier this month and was very impressed. My Walla Walla favorite, Skylite Cellars, is worth a visit too. Cheers!

      Thanks. It is a seriously daunting tasting. I’m going to have to make a plan and stick to it. I’ve had Dunham pretty frequently but will try to check out Skylite. Thanks for the tip, reading, and commenting.

    Wow. I have been away (Arizona and Costa Rica) and you have been drinking! 20 great wineries (All in WA), a great rose… and Piquepoul. Which is new to me. You are keeping me on my toes. Pretty soon I just might start a wine blog. GREG

      I look forward to hearing about Arizona and Costa Rica. I went to grad school in Flagstaff. Enjoyed your posts from Amish Country. Did you bring back a quilt? And I welcome a wine blog from you. Would be the first one to subscribe.

    I would highly recommend Gramercy Cellars. I was in Walla Walla recently and their Tempranillo was the best wine of the trip!

      I’m a fan of their wines as well. Thanks for the additional suggestion and the comment.
