THROUGH THE COURSE of 2016, I’ve tasted thousands of wines from throughout the Pacific Northwest (and around the globe, for that matter).
Knowing I’ll be producing this year-end list, I think about wines that really stand out. I tasted the No. 4 and 5 wines on this year’s list in the first quarter, and each stood out in my mind for the entire year, both for their clarity as well as purity of fruit.
The judging, held at the historic Columbia Gorge Hotel, began Wednesday and concluded Thursday afternoon. The Invite, as it’s known, is unique in the United States, as it is the only wine judging in the country in which the judges nominate the wines they want to have judged. - October 6, 2016

This is the 16th Anniversay of the Awards. And the status of the year's judging is record-breaking. Over 1500 wines were entered from 230 wineries, a testament to the growing number of wineries in the country, and the faith in these awards as being a way to showcase and benchmark our wines. - July 16, 2016
