We’re almost finished building our wine cellar, and once we’ve loaded in the stash that’s now decorating our living room, there’s going to be a lot of racks to fill. Not that we’re planning on going crazy, mind you, but we’re always looking for something new, particularly from Washington, whose wines we love.
So on a routine visit to Through the Walla Walla Grape Vine I just learned about a new winery: Thirsty Pagans , and its 2005 Communion label red wine. I can’t quarrel with their stated premise: “We think wine IS food.” There’s nothing I like more than irreverence, and their names and label have that down. Bravo.
They’re not there yet, but I’ll bet these folks have an Alt-0174 up their sleeves somewhere! Meanwhile, cheers!
