Pandemic-era wine tasting looks a bit different. What hasn’t changed: the charm of visiting some of the state’s best winemaking regions, from the rolling hills of Central Washington to Woodinville’s urbane new arrivals. Our titans of cabernet achieve milestones while newer makers across the state are embracing new styles, from pét-nat to high-acid bottles meant to pair with food. Like the wine itself, as the industry matures, it takes on more depth and nuance.
