California vs. Washington State Wine Tasting - Houston, Texas

Join us for a side by side comparison of reds between these two West Coast neighbors. California wine growing regions have already established a premier international reputation. Although the state of Washington has been producing wine since the 1800’s like California, recently there has been an unprecedented 10 year boom of high quality wines and new wineries. Both states have vast amounts of summer sunshine in common, but their differences in geology and micro-climate result in distinctly unique expressions. The first half of the tasting will be conducted as a “side by side blind“, after which we will reveal the wines on each table. Can you tell the difference between a California and Washington wine? How do they contrast and why? Which ones will you prefer most? A lively discussion is sure to be had over these benchmark wines from each state.
