repub & american business plans to send technology to Japan & China & extract profits out of the balance of payments has worked well during the last decades. Its too bad, that repubs & american business did business with chinese communists tho, since they established chinese communism by purposefully murdering, torturing & starving 100 million of their own BROTHERS, SISTERS, CHILDREN & BABIES between 1949 thru the early 1970's.

We also discovered that american business was only international business & dealt with anyone, even when they were murderers, torturers & starvers of innocents.

Northie..... there should be great wines in Eastern Washington. Do you know of specific areas? Yakima..... Wenatchee.....any areas around Spokane?
You name it. There are great wineries all across Eastern WA. The expensive stuff comes from Walla Walla, from makers like Leonetti, Basel, Seven Hills & Woodward Canyon. Figure $100 per bottle and up for good vintages.

I drink wine from humbler estates. Barnard & Griffin, Ste. Michelle, Arbor Crest. My fave is Spokane's own Townsend (their T3 is to kill for).

A few of the vintners are beginning to buy land north and upslope of the prime terroir around Walla Walla and the lower Yakima Valley. You can guess why.

The correct phrase is, "to die for," at least it is for the civilised among us.
-
to die for
Sl. important or desirable enough to die for; worth dying for. This chocolate cake is to die for! We had a beautiful room at the hotel and the service was to die for.

Slight variation in climate, generally referred to as weather, has always been the main controlling factor of the grapevine's success.
There are ideal places to plant vineyards, but Nature's weather doesn't always play ball.
My one off experience of the grape harvest was in Perpignan, 1962, when an unusually wet summer had as good as ruined the crop.
The perfect wine grape requires a suitable soil, a certain amount of sunshine and water and each variety benefits from slightly different amounts of those ingredients.
Wine grape growers carefully choose a variety that suits their geographical location and soil conditions.

Since you aren't civilized & are a slimy, filthy vile pukey proud racist pig, it is obvious that your nature of denial encompasses your self-identity.

It would be really interesting to learn what makes someone like you behave the way you do.
It's evident that you have no personal dignity and very little respect for your fellow man.
You have my deepest sympathy.
