Over the last decade, Washington State has continued to emerge as a key player in the American winemaking scene. Thanks to the top-quality wines made here from classic French varietals, the region is now firmly on the radar of wine lovers all across the globe.

This success is largely attributed to the state's unique climatic conditions, which have become increasingly favorable for viticulture during this time of critical climate change. Unlike California, where vignerons routinely face extreme weather events, rising temperatures, and a myriad of other climate-related challenges, Washington State's cooler and more predictable climate provides a more stable environment for growing classic French varietals. The region's distinct yet moderate seasons, with temperate summers and gently cool falls, offer an ideal growing environment for grapes to develop with nicely balanced ripe fruit and lifted acidity.

The impact of climate change on West Coast winemaking has undoubtedly been significant. As California vignerons grapple with the effects of warming temperatures and extreme weather events, those in Washington significantly benefit from the state's geographical location and topography. The Cascade Mountains create a rain shadow effect, resulting in terroir ideal for vineyards. This lucky combination of perfect terroir and cooler climate has allowed most of Washington State to side-step many of the climate change issues in California.

Barnard Griffin Winery, nestled in the heart of Washington State's wine country, was founded in 1983 by the husband and wife team of Rob Griffin and Deborah Barnard. Barnard Griffin is one of Washington's most venerable wineries and has the distinction of being one of the state's oldest family-owned and operated wineries.

In your glass, Barnard Griffin Sauvignon Blanc greets with crisp notes of green apple, citrus zest, and just a whisper of freshly cut herbs. On the palate, tropical fruits meet gentle acidity with just a touch of minerality.
Pair this lovely West Coast Sauvignon Blanc with grilled shrimp, seared scallops, basil pesto pasta, and poultry. It will also shine with mildly spicy Thai green curry and Garam Masala Indian.
