A few weeks ago Antoine and myself got the opportunity to interview¬† Cameron Fries of White Heron Cellars which is located in the ghost town of Trinidad, between Quincy and Wenatchee, above the Columbia River in Washington State. We got to taste through his Chardonnay, Roussanne, Pinot Noir (2005), Mariposa Vineyard Red Wine, and Syrah. I have to say, his Pinot Noir is the biggest and best Washington state I have ever had. We also got a nice tour of his 14 acre vineyard. He had recently planted some Petit Verdot so I can’t wait for them to grow on and get bottled! This is a variety I am very interested in growing my self!

It’s gonna be hard to find White Heron Cellars on this side of the mountains, so if you are ever in the Quincy area – it’s totally worth making a visit! And the prices are very moderate!

Thanks Cameron for being such an excellent host!
