NxNw is the second label of King Estates, one of the largest wineries in the Willamette Valley. This project represents a interesting blend of fruit from length of the Columbia River Valley, creating some very flavorful wines (and they are nutritious, too!). Here’s what the winery says:
“North by Northwest represents wines made from inland grape growing appellations of the Columbia River Basin of Oregon and Washington. The NxNW winemakers have developed strong relationships with growers and fellow winemakers in the Columbia River Appellation and throughout the northwest viticultural region. NxNW is a unique lens for capturing the essence of terroir, the character of the people, and the quality of the wines from this great emerging winegrowing region.”
