Wine blogger becomes wine purveyor

Paul Gregutt, wine blogger extraordinaire, Seattle Times wine critic, Wine Enthusiast magazine writer, author, filmmaker, musician and innkeeper, now has another title to add to list of credentials: wine purveyor.

Gregutt plans to officially release his first vintage of five Waitsburg Cellars wines Monday at an invitation only opening in Seattle. Gregutt and his wife Karen live in Waitsburg, a small wheat country town about 20 miles north of Walla Walla.

The first vintages include a red blend, two aromatic chenin blancs, a riesling and a pinot gris.

Gregutt's long connections with the wine industry won him the pick of Precept Wine's oldest vines near Walla Walla. The chenin blanc vines are said to be 40 to 50 years old.

I'm not sure how involved Gregutt is in actually making the wine, but the collaboration between his experienced palette and Precept's grapes is likely to yield some pretty special wines.

Great to know that there could be a future to wine blogging besides alcoholism after all. Here's hoping he'll send me a couple bottles to review.
