During the past 40 years, Washington State has emerged as a premier wine region with more than 800 wineries. Its high desert lands full of sagebrush and rattlesnakes have become world-class vineyards. Using material from her Lines on Wines interviews with Washington winemakers, Marji Morgan, chair of CWU’s Communication department, explores why Washington is unique as a wine region and how its wine industry has rapidly became a contender for international awards for a diverse array of fine wines.

Marji Morgan is a wine enthusiast and historian. She is passionate about good wine and good story, and explores both in her new Internet radio talk show Lines on Wines hosted by Ellensburg Community Radio.
