Spokane full of pleasant surprises for wine-lovers
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Today I'll wrap up my three-part series on Spokane wineries by sharing some of the highlights of my visit last month. At Townshend Cellar, owner/winemaker Don Townshend and his sons Michael and Brendon oversee a winery that produces 18,000 cases annually from over 20 varietals. They also own Spokane's Lone Canary and Mountain Dome labels. I was impressed with how long Townshend holds their vintages back prior to release, allowing the wines to develop additional character and complexity.
