Thank you for your patience while our blog, Write for Wine – it’s Wine O’clock Somewhere, was offline for more than a week after being hacked. As a result, this Washington wine blog was not accessible during Thanksgiving.
We are thankful that you stayed with us, and we’d like to send belated Thanksgiving wishes to family, friends and our readers. We’re thankful for many, many things.
First, always is health and family, followed by good friends and good jobs. We’d also like to give thanks for any unknown blessings already on their way.
We are thankful that we’ve had an opportunity to become friends with many people at Washington wineries including:
Jarrod and Ali, Vida and Ross, Matt, Kathie, Rachel, Shanah and Carah at Alexandria Nicole Cellars; Rod, Leslie and Marcus at William Church Winery; Angie and Kevin, Daniel and Helen, Peter and Nancy at Efeste; Kevin and Rebecca at Barrage Cellars; Doug and Manny at Obelisco Estate; Bijal, Sinead and Jean Claude at The Woodhouse Wine Estates; Marie-Eve at Forgeron Cellars and Gilles at Long Shadows; Charlie, Jess and Cindy at Fidelitas Wines; Mike and Kate at Northwest Totem Cellars; Justin at Va Piano; Neil at Cooper Wine; John and Peggy at JM Cellars; Tim and Nancy at Fall Line; Judy and Don at Hard Row to Hoe; Hope at Heaven’s Cave; Chris at Gorman Winery; Darby at Darby Winery; Marty and Chris at Avennia; Trey at Sleight of Hand; Amber and Greg at Desert Wind; Bart at Bartholomew Wine; and Mike, Karen, John and Kelly Sauer of Red Willow Vineyard.
And a special shoutout to our Walla Walla gal-pals Jamie at L’Ecole 41; Muriel at Otis Kenyon; Shari at Woodward Canyon; and Catie at Wild Walla Walla Wine Woman; and to our special friends who are now in Walla Walla, Brennon and Paige Leighton.
Of course there are dozens of other fabulous friends and wine enthusiasts in Washington state, Oregon, California and other places — too many to name — and we wish you all the best too.
Happy belated Thanksgiving! Stay safe over the holiday season.
Margot and Dave
