Inspired by Yakima Valley’s Wine Culture

Soul of the Vine

In celebration of Washington Wine Month, Yakima Valley growers have produced a four and a half minute video highlighting the significant touch points that make the Yakima Valley AVA the perfect “painters pallette” for Washington winemakers.

A truly inspiring video. Well done.


Soul of the Vine from Wine Yakima Valley on Vimeo.

The Washington wine industry itself has grown up with the Yakima wine region. The oldest producing vines in the state are here, planted by wine pioneer Dr. Walter Clore. These beginnings have served the entire state, making the video a perfect complement to any wines or wine programs being featured during Washington Wine Month, March 2014.

Wine Yakima Valley is a member organization of wineries and wine grape growers whose mission is to strengthen awareness of, and attract wine enthusiasts to, Yakima Valley’s Wine Country. Located in south-central Washington, the Yakima Valley is a scenic and leisurely 150-mile drive from Seattle, Spokane, or Portland. The valley is the original, largest, and most diverse wine region in Washington, producing half of the state’s wine. Located on the same parallel as the famous Bordeaux region of France, the Yakima Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area) provides a nearly perfect location to grow wine grapes.

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @wild4wawine ) of my favorite dessert for over a year. Possibly, I've posted the original recipe to Instagram. If you ask, I usually do. After success and failures, I've learned that this dessert does not always deliver desired results. With some effort, I've figured out why, and the remedy. Yes, I've been gently tweaking the recipe. Adjusting ingredients. Modifying and streamlining the process. With mixed results. Confiding with my wife, she gave me a tip that finally nailed this recipe down. I'm happy to share this recipe with modifications. It's truly a lovely dessert. My favorite. Enjoy responsibly. Just out of the oven flourless chocolate torte. Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Torte An easy recipe to follow. You will need an oven, mixer, spring form pan and a double boiler. While you can eat this torte warm, I prefer to let it cool down and refrigerate it

Chateau St. Michelle, Indian Wells, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Good Wine, Happy Camper Fall is settling on us quite rapidly. Today, our sunny afternoon was framed by ominous dark clouds lurking on the horizon north of us. It‘s unsettling how quickly the cool weather descends on SE Washington. That touch of autumn sunshine put me in the mood for grilling steaks tonight. I‘ll embrace the sun when I can. But, what good is steak without wine? On my way home, I grabbed a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. On a whim, I bought a wine I would not usually purchase; it was priced on sale for less that $15. My expectations were not high for the wine, I was just hoping for something palatable. Chateau St. Michelle Chateau St. Michelle, is a Washington winery - an Eastern and Western Washington winery. The St. Michelle winery and tasting room is located in Woodinville, Washington, just across lake Washington from Seattle. However, this wine is made in Patterson, Washington, from Columbia Valley grapes (Indian Wells series) at their attractive Columbia Crest

In response, a secret government organization is working to protect the sanctity of time. This group is the Ministry of Time. Agents of the ministry, are able to travel to different times and places via a deep well of stairs located in Madrid, Spain. From these stairs, innumerable doorways branch off to different periods of the past. Agents are recruited from other time periods, they work diligently to protect the history of Spain. And we get to go along for the thrilling ride. I’m changing up things today by recommending my favorite Spanish TV series. I found it accidentally, now I'm hooked.
