The USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Award for Winery Tasting Rooms announced Long Shadows Vintners ranked No. 4 on its annual list. A panel of industry experts nominated 20 wineries for the award, selecting from thousands of tasting rooms nationwide. Readers voted for the top ten. Long Shadows was the only Washington State winery named to the list.
This is an incredible honor for our entire team. It acknowledges our winemakers, our hospitality team and Allen Shoup’s founding vision to bring global recognition to the wines of the Columbia Valley. From the early days of his career at Ste. Michelle, Allen has encouraged collectors to look beyond California and the Old World for exceptional quality. It’s validating to have wine lovers from across the country not only recognize our tasting experience but also the excellence of Washington wines. We are sincerely appreciative.— Dane Narbaitz, president
