Welcome to Issue Two of Spokane Wine Magazine

Welcome to issue number two of Spokane Wine Magazine. What started out as a personal goal to visit all of the Spokane wineries has become a quest to let the world (or at least our little corner of the world) know about the amazing quality of our regional wineries.    Over the last year, Spokane wine has received statewide and national attention as wine writers and customers take notice of the attention to craftsmanship.

25 wineries now call Spokane home through production or satellite tasting room locations. 2011 saw the opening of Nectar Tasting Room, Marketplace Wine Bar and Cougar Crest Winery. We also saw the rebranding of one local winery and the merger acquisition of Spokane’s only sparkling manufacturer. Arbor Crest rebuilt the Cliff House mansion after a 2009 fire and our region’s oldest winery is nearing the 30 year old mark. As the economy continues to struggle, no new Spokane production wineries opened (a first for the last 4 years).

In this issue you’ll be introduced to two wineries just outside of our region but within a short drive, we’ll explore downtown and uncork some ideas for holiday wine shopping.

You’ll also notice funky square boxes on most articles. These QR Codes can be scanned by smart phones and take you to additional content, maps, or winery web sites. We hope the additional information is helpful.

To stay connected to ongoing Spokane wine news and events please bookmark http://www.spokanewinemagazine.com and visit the sponsors and advertisers in this publication. I want to offer a special thanks to the Spokane Convention and Visitors Bureau and Rainmaker Marketing for their support and vision to help make this magazine possible.

Enjoy and Drink Happy!

You can pick up a free copy of the magazine at all area wineries, at many of the sponsors and advertisers and at the Spokane Visitor’s Center.
