Washington, local winemakers hopeful grape crops remain undamaged by wildfire smoke

After wildfires ravaged the West Coast earlier this year, the resulting smoke taint on grapes prompted some winemakers in California to abandon plans to make a 2020 vintage. Now with harvest underway in Washington – the nation’s second-largest wine producer – it’s a wait-and-see situation for vintners who are sending grape samples to labs for analysis and hoping potential smoke exposure will have minimal impact on this year’s vintage
