Washington State is the second largest wine region in the U.S. behind California. Which of the following is NOT one of top 4 wine grapes grown in the State?
More than 40 grape varieties are grown in Washington, but three quarters of the wine production is made up of just four grape varieties: cabernet sauvingon, riesling, chardonnay, and merlot. Syrah comes in fifth with only a half as much produced as fourth-placed merlot. That said, syrah is the grape to watch here. The quality of Washington State syrahs is shockingly good.
