Walla Walla vintners have come of age
On a Parisian Holiday a few years ago, my wife and I shared a table in a small cafe with some other American travelers. One of the ladies was telling us, quite loudly, that she had been "touring the wine country." My wife and I exchanged a bemused glance and I asked, sort of gingerly, "Ummm, which one exactly?" The lady responded, "You know, THE wine country."

Considering that most of France is "Wine Country," I was curious as to which region she had been visiting. Bordeaux? Champagne? Burgundy? Apparently, clueless as she was, she thought France was like America with only one area renowned for wine production – and she had just seen it. We joked that she was headed for "the cheese country" tomorrow.
