“We are forever thankful that we were still able to receive our supply of huckleberries to make Spokane’s most popular wine.
“Despite efforts to cultivate and commercially grow this delectable treat, the only source for the huckleberry continues to be from the wild in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Those brave enough to compete with bears and other animals indigenous to the area are rewarded with a dark-blue berry that is uniquely Northwest.
“We have found that the blending of the berry’s tart juice and our Riesling to be a real taste sensation. The subtle blueberry-like flavors of the huckleberry add nice complexities to the wonderfully intense spice and floral characters of our Riesling.”
