Lemberger

Known in its native Austria as Blaufrankisch, Lemberger is a red grape grown in just a few areas of the Northwest, primarily Washington’s Yakima Valley, with just a little in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.

The resulting wine tends to be delicious and jammy. It’s generally inexpensive and perfect for middle-of-the-week dinners.
