Washington Wine Report is dedicated to the wines and wineries of the Pacific Northwest. Samples received from other regions may or may not be reviewed at the discretion of the editor.

All wines are reviewed by Sean P. Sullivan. Read about how wines are rated and reviewed here. For information on how to submit wines, please contact Sean at [email protected].

Editor’s Note: As of January 2013, in addition to reviewing wines here, I am also reviewing wines for Wine Enthusiast for various regions (see table below). To avoid any conflicts, I will only be reviewing wines in this space that are not designated with the appellations I am covering for Wine Enthusiast. See a breakdown of the specific areas that I will be covering for Washington Wine Report and for Wine Enthusiast in the table below.

Note that the determining factor is the appellation or regional designation that is on the label, regardless of where the winery is located or where the vineyard is located. For example, Columbia Valley is an appellation that I am covering for Washington Wine Report whereas Horse Heaven Hills is an appellation that I am covering for Wine Enthusiast. If a wine is made from Horse Heaven Hills fruit but is labeled as Columbia Valley, I would review it for Washington Wine Report. If a wine is made from Horse Heaven Hills fruit and is labeled as Horse Heaven Hills, I would review it for Wine Enthusiast.

If you have any questions about this or are interested in submitting wines for Washington Wine Report, please contact me at [email protected] for additional information.

If you are interested in submitting wines for Wine Enthusiast, please see the Wine Enthusiast Tasting and Review FAQ here and Wine Sample Submission form here.
