14 Hands Vineyard Offers Fine, Washington-State Wines
Although Atlanta and Washington state are clear across the country from each other, if you find yourself on the West Coast, we recommend you visit 14 Hands Winery. Set against the lush backdrop that the state is known for, 14 Hands wines are handcrafted into big, bold, juicy fruit-forward reds and crisp, fruit-forward white wines. The winery takes its name from the horses (remember, they're measured in hands) that used to roam free throughout the area. In addition to being one of Flavors’ personal favorite wines, the company also has received professional recognition for its work. Business publication MarketWatch named 14 Hands the Wine Brand of the Year for 2012.
And for just $12 a bottle on 14 Hands’ online store, you can enjoy full bottles of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinto Gris and the winery's special Hot to Trot white blend featuring fresh flavors of pear, melon and lemon zest that are balanced by crisp acidity, that make for a bright and lively finish. For more information, including where to purchase these fine wines, please visit 14hands.com.
