It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to my first regional series of the year, the Washington State Wine Deep Dive 2021. 

Across three episodes we will explore the terroir, geology, winemaking culture and wines of the US’s second largest quality wine producing region, which is regularly ranked among the world's top wine regions… 

Guests are drawn from landmark producers in the Columbia valley, the Yakima valley and Walla Walla. Uniquely placed to translate the larger story of that each glass of Washington State Wine represents.

We begin our series with an in-depth look at Washington’s largest viticultural area, Columbia valley with Juan Muñoz Oca, Head of winemaking and vineyards at Ch Ste. Michelle, which is the largest winery in Washington State. 

He takes us through the macro influences on grape growing in the region including the Missoula Floods, the largest known movement of water in our history… Enjoy!
