Most wine lovers are familiar with the meteoric rise of the Washington and Oregon wine regions. Example: from 19 wineries in 1981 Washington now has over 500. Say Pinot Noir and most wine lovers would likely say Oregon. In fact many red wine lovers refer to Washington as the dream place for Cabernet Sauvignon and Oregon as the dream place for Pinot Noir.

Over the course of 10 days and 9 nights, Vin will take us to all the hot spots in both states. Starting in Seattle (Woodinville) we'll travel east through the Cascade Mountains passing Yakima and Columbia Valleys on our way to Walla Walla.
