Photos from Wine Bloggers Conference 2010

Here are a few photos from the event itself. This week has been incredibly fun, incredibly overwhelming, and will take a little processing for me when I get home. However, I have lots of things about Washington, wine, and the people of wine (be it producers, bloggers, industry) that I want to explore and write about in the future. Overall it has been a great experience and a huge thank you goes to the organizers of the event and to the people of Washington wine for enthusiastically hosting and sharing. Enjoy the photos and expect some discussion of Washington and highlights of the wine in the weeks or months to come.

The vineyards of Cougar Crest winery, who shared with us all about vineyard management in the harsh weather that Walla Walla can have. They also poured an awesome Cabernet Franc.

The winemakers from Skylite Cellars, Smasne Cellars, and Riverhaven Cellars gave us an outstanding lineup of syrahs that showcased Eastern Washington.

The barrels holding Pepper Bridge Winery's great merlot and cabernet sauvignon juice. They provided us a lunch and tour to cap off Saturday afternoon.

While I'm ready to go home this has been a wonderful experience, and hope that it will make The Vino File better, as it certainly has inspired me to excellence in this pursuit.


  1. hope your rescheduled flight worked out fine. After being stuck on the highway for 2 hours, my plane ended up sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours! Sunuva.

    Anyway, nice to meet you and good luck with the blawg redesign.
