The grape make up of Washington is 20% each Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Syrah is the grape that is making the most in-roads in the state, and is the grape that many would consider the signature of Washington state at this time.

One of the most interesting facts about Washington is that their sandy soils help to combat phylloxera.

As far as their winery stats, they have at present approximately 870 wineries and they are growing at about four wineries per month ... where it levels out, nobody knows.
