Taste Washington! 2012 Recommended Wines.
* 3rd Runner Up – Maison Bleue, my 4th Favorite Winery at Taste Washington! 2012.

Very excited about the Maison Bleue Notre Vie Viognier. The grapes are planted at an elevation of 1,400 feet, so the soils are native, ancient soil types, which pre-date the Missoula floods. Their Boushey Syrah was outstanding. Friends, this winery merits your attention. Take some bottles home and enjoy in a family setting.
