I was going to PM Chong but since you're Allwine here goes........I was browsing one of the local liquor stores and found a stash of Snowqualmie wine. I was under the impression they were out of business for some time now. Many years ago I stumbled out of the winery after a long tasting session with someone named Cher( no not that one) and was drinking their Gewurztraminer for a while after. Anyone know if their back in business or is that why the bottle of white tasted a bit off? Thanks, Bob
I don't know if this winery is the same company, but this one is alive and kicking. They're apparently the biggest organic winery around. Here's their "Naked" Gewurztraminer:
I still have a case of Columbia Winery's 2001 Gewurztraminer. Leftover from the several cases I bought for one of my son's wedding that never happened. It is reminiscent of Liebfraumilch that was my staple in the late 60s. In mid-1970, I was able to buy 16 cases of Cabernet and Chardonnay for $0.97 per bottle, from two WA wineries that were closing down. Going back to the Chablis and Burgundy after that was like drinking stale beer.
