Christmas tree, Washington wine style
Walk into the Washington Wine Commission offices on Western Avenue in downtown Seattle (a two-minute walk from Ye Olde Curiousity Shop) and you’ll be greeted by this wonderful old grapevine, which was donated by Kent Waliser, general manager of Sagemoor Vineyards in the Columbia Valley.
The vine was planted in the early 1970s and had to be pulled out in recent years, so Waliser gave it to the wine commission, where it sits near the main entrance. In the past week or so, the wine commission staff decorated it for the holiday season.
