About Write for Wine

Washington state has an abundance of excellent wine. You’ve read about many of our favorites here at Write for Wine.

Those two sentences underscore our approach to this blog.

We do not consider ourselves critics; Write for Wine is not about reviews. We simply like to tell you about the wines that make us smile or cheer or sigh with content – wines that create an “aha moment.”

And maybe, just maybe, if you like some of the wines we like, you’ll come back to read more, and share your favorites with us, too.

So … if we don’t like a wine, we don’t write about it. There’s too much great wine to discuss, so why waste time on wine that doesn’t appeal to us?

Importantly, if we don’t write about a wine, that doesn’t necessarily mean the wine is not good. It simply means our palates prefer other wines.

Or, sometimes it means that life has gotten in the way of our time spent on this blog, and we’ll write about it soon. There are many wonderful wines in our queue for the weeks ahead. Thanks for your patience while we catch up on the list!
