Another tough couple of weeks at work, but at least it is the weekend! When I got home from work, I cracked open the Boomtown Pinot Gris. Boomtown is the second label from Dusted Valley, a Walla Walla winery with a tasting room in Woodinville. Two Wisconsin natives with a dream for wine making opened a winery in Walla Walla, and they make some really good wine!
The Boomtown Pinot Gris is a wonderfully balanced wine; crisp with just a little sweetness. It is certainly a Pinot Gris done the Washington way, with much less of the sweetness of the Oregon style Pinot Gris. Not that I don’t love a good Oregon Pinot Gris, but this one is fantastic!
I paired mine with a tuna fish sandwich with pickles, because, hey, I like to class things up on a Friday night. And you should drink what you like, and sometimes don’t worry about whether or not it goes with what you are eating. Don’t tell anybody, but I had dinner in my pajamas too. I said it was a long week!
Boomtown is available at grocery stores, restaurants, and through the tasting room, but you can’t buy it on their website. If you see it, pick some up!
