In 2003, Doug Gore handed over the Columbia Crest winemaking reins to oversee all of Ste. Michelle Wine Estates' production.
Wine In India A decade later, he is getting back into winemaking with a new label that pays tribute to the Columbia River's history and focuses on the important and remote Wahluke Slope.
India Wines Last fall, the Northwest's largest wine producer launched Seven Falls with three wines and Gore in charge.

Close to home, there's momentum within the Texas Hill Country Wineries , formerly known as the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail , which recently welcomed three new wineries and a tasting room to its organization to bring the total number of members to 36.
Wine Business In India The new members include Lewis Wines in Johnson City; Wedding Oak Winery in San Saba; Fiesta Winery Fredericksburg, which also has a tasting room at the winery in Lometa; and Hye Meadow Winery in Hye, which is scheduled to open by early May.
Wines From India “We've really grown past just being a trail organization. We're really a wine consumer-driven organization,” says John Rivenburgh , who is president of the group and co-founder of Bending Branch Winery in Comfort.
So what exactly are you getting — or not getting — when you buy organic wine and spirits? What you’re not getting is a mouthful of added sulfites, pesticides, and fungicides.
Free Wine Testing (You might still get some sulfites, though — but it’s a minuscule amount compared to most wines; six to 40 parts per million in organic wines, and 350 million parts per million in non-organic wines.) If you’re really concerned about what’s in your drink, be sure to look for the "100 percent" organic label; wines that are labeled simply "organic" have at least 95 percent organic ingredients.
Wine Business In India Beyond striving to produce organic products, vineyards and distilleries are pursuing carbon footprint-friendly, biodynamic, and renewable energy means to create sustainable spirits. We’ve found wineries using solar panels for energy, eco-friendly materials for bottling, and even natural filtration techniques using minerals for their products. (And even one eco-friendly wine tree.) There’s no better way to be drinking green this Earth Day.
