The following is an excerpt from an article in the June-July issue of Vineyard Winery Management magazine. 

Since Gary Figgins and his family planted the first modern-day grape- vines in the Walla Walla Valley at Leonetti Cellar in 1977, the region has been a crucial part of Washington state’s wine identity. However, the knock on Walla Walla, for many years, was it was home to numerous wineries and tasting rooms (cur- rently more than 120) but few vineyards. Decades later, while many local wineries still source fruit from throughout the larger Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley is flour- ishing as a grapegrowing region, with sev- eral new areas being explored to broaden its offerings and impact.

Spring has sprung in Washington wine country, and the onset of the sun is the starting flag for resident photographer Richard Duval. On a recent two-day shoot of the Lake Chelan AVA, he spied serious growth on both sides of the lake. Particularly riveting is Mellisoni Vineyards on the lake’s south side.
