Washington wine month ended on March 31, but please let the celebration of our state’s excellent wine continue.
We applaud our state’s wineries every month of every year. And, in the midst of COVID-19, our state wineries really need our support.
You can enjoy Washington wine from the safety and comfort of your home by ordering wine online, utilizing curbside pickup services and other creative winery promotions during these tough times.
Show your appreciation for our state’s stellar wineries, and you know they will appreciate you, too. We are in this together!
