Get to Know the Alliance of Women in Washington Wine

Welcome to Our Stories

Let us be the first to say: Welcome here, and welcome back. We can’t wait to see what you sip and where you go. But while you discover our wines and regions, don’t forget to get to know the character, voice, and identity of WA Wine from those who make WA Wine what it is today on our brand new Stories column. If there’s one thing we’ve got, it’s character.

Eccentrics, mavericks, ideologues, rockers, chemists, poets, traditionalists, upstarts, lifers, dabblers—there’s a little of everything up here.

This series pulls apart the archetype to see what makes top wine professionals feel most alive, and what drives their passion for the business. Thirty-seven episodes in, we’re just getting started.
