@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Hi Doug. importing is a cool job if you like to travel, cheese shop, broker, zachys? @demilove #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Or you could make Riesling if you plant close enough to that big lake? @HestiaCellars @demilove #SommChat

@winewatcher (Alexandra Alznauer): So many diff paths 4 those who know wine/love it. Too bad today often need to prove this w/xpensive certifications. @demilove #SommChat

@SeattleWineSoc (Seattle Wine Society): From the Seattle Wine Society board president, Mel: Q: What grape variety grows better in WA than any other? #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Hi Mel. I think Merlot in the right conditions is still the best we do. Then Cab then Syrah. @SeattleWineSoc #wawine #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Riesling seems mixed. some really cool (pun intended) being grown near lake chelan but still erratic at times. @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Curious what past guests @drewhendricksms and @winejames think the best varietal in #wawine is? #SommChat

@chrisnishiwaki (Chris Nishiwaki): @HestiaCellars @SeattleWineSoc Cab Franc is a mixed bag in WA but when grown properly it is among my favorite varietals in WA #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Agreed. When it’s grown properly. But still think a little stuffing helps. @chrisnishiwaki @HestiaCellars @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat

@1337wine (Mark V. Fusco): @HestiaCellars @drewhendricksms @winejames I’d say the best wines I’ve had from #wawine have been merlot. #SommChat

@wineanthem (NW Wine Anthem): @chrisnishiwaki @HestiaCellars @SeattleWineSoc it’s #wawine Syrah for me #SommChat

@MattMcGinnis (Matt McGinnis): @wineanthem Agree! Love #wawine Syrah @HestiaCellars @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat #WW

@chrisnishiwaki (Chris Nishiwaki): @HestiaCellars @wineanthem @SeattleWineSoc the popularity of WA Syrah has flooded the market with poor imitations. #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Welcome. Syrah will get there, just needs some more time. Patience. @wineanthem @chrisnishiwaki @HestiaCellars @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat

@megrnelson (Meg Nelson): @HestiaCellars – What #wawine wineries should people around the country be paying attention to? Hestia already being obvious. #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): I think @stemichelle as they set the tone for the industry. @woodwardcanyon and @lecole41 also great! @megrnelson @HestiaCellars #SommChat

@Sassodoro (Sassodoro): @HestiaCellars WA wine often strikes me as having both lush fruit (low acid?) & zippy finish (high acid?). How possible? #SommChat

@chrisnishiwaki (Chris Nishiwaki): @Sassodoro @HestiaCellars the range in styles is part of the beauty of WA wines. #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Indeed it is. the spice of life some (tired) would say @chrisnishiwaki @Sassodoro @HestiaCellars #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Why, it’s the “perfect climate for wine!” We also have cool nights and exciting microclimates. @Sassodoro @HestiaCellars #wawine #SommChat

@VinoCaPisco (Countess Rose Perry): .@HestiaCellars @keepercoll @seattlewinesoc If you could only drink 1 domestic wine for the rest of your life, what would it be? #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Older Eyrie Pinot Noir @VinoCaPisco @HestiaCellars @keepercoll @seattlewinesoc #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): A. @KeeperColl – It just keeps growing. People are willing to share here, though uber competitive everyone willing to help #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): @KeeperColl – You also see the collective wisdom and experience being passed down from the pioneers to the next generation. #SommChat

@SeattleWineSoc (Seattle Wine Society): Another Q passed along from our board president, Mel, by Eileen: Q: What do you think will be the next popular grape in WA? #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Many say Grenache, maybe, I’m rooting for it’s long blending partners. Chenin Blanc? Tastes like Huet/Joly in wa! @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat

@chrisnishiwaki (Chris Nishiwaki): @SeattleWineSoc I hope WA wine producers focus on what they do best & not concerned themselves with the next big thing. #SommChat

@chrisnishiwaki (Chris Nishiwaki): @HestiaCellars @SeattleWineSoc I would love ripen WA Grenache Chenin Semillon Nebbiolo. I also want a toilet made of solid gold. #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Damn Nish. You have opinions! many will sink soon. purge coming @chrisnishiwaki @HestiaCellars @wineanthem @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): At this point n time, yes. @enjoielife @HestiaCellars @stemichele#SommChat

@rebeccaonwine (Rebecca Murphy): @HestiaCellars What about semillon? Some of the best @lecole41 @northstarwinery @keepercoll #SommChat

@SeattleWineSoc (Seattle Wine Society): Another question from the board: Q: What are the Q’s to ask of a somm in a restaurant to receive good wine recommendations? #SommChat

@HestiaCellars (Hestia Cellars): Ask them what they would drink. If they have anything not on the list in your price range. set parameters @SeattleWineSoc #SommChat
