Washington's original wine grape is once again the state's most dominant variety, both in quality and quantity. While this might seem like old news -- great Riesling has been growing in the Columbia Valley for more than a half-century -- Washington growers and winemakers continue to find exciting new areas to grow the grape. #WAwine
