While most of the attention is focused on the wines of California, especially the wines of Napa and Sonoma, the wineries of the Pacific Northwest have been making some pretty good products themselves. Here, we’ll stop by two wineries, Covey Run in Washington State’s Columbia Valley and Oregon’s King Estate outside Eugene. Covey Run is perhaps best known for its Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which we’ll match to the cuisine of Walter Pisano at Seattle’s Tullio restaurant. King Estate shines with Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, and its operation includes its own chef and some pretty serious cuisine. Two great wineries and a bunch of great wine-it adds up to a darned good show.
