Christina Messer, director of the Washington state field office of the USDA-NASS, toasts winemaker Gordon Hill of Milbrandt Vineyards.
A new attendance record of 1,056 was set at the Washington Association of Winegrape Growers (WAWGG) annual meeting, conference and trade show held in Kennewick, Wash. Growers, suppliers and winemakers gathered Feb. 7-9 in the Three Rivers Convention Center and Toyota Center to learn about new research on Brettanomyces and cover crops, to taste Washington-grown wines made from Spanish and Portuguese grape varieties, to learn how small wineries can export, as well as many other session topics.

Enology student Dustin Tobin is infatuated with a magnum of Quilceda Creek's 100-point (Wine Advocate) Cabernet, which sold for $2,750 in the benefit auction at the WAWGG annual meeting in Kennewick, Wash.
They kicked the hoops on new barrels and inspected other new equipment in the trade show, and generally reveled in their state's increasing recognition for producing top-quality wines. A six-member panel discussion on "The Quest for the Holy Grail: 100-Point Wines," had the requisite critic-bashing, but no one questioned the positive glow the state got from the recent second 100-point score from the Wine Advocate newsletter for Quilceda Creek wines.
