Over a 5 day visit to WA state, followed by additional tastings at his office, Kelley tasted 350-400 wines for his first complete regional report, focusing on the 2015 and 2016 vintages from Washington. Avennia received high marks.

High Scores for the Avennia 2015 Vintage

Aerospace engineer turned wine writer, Jeb Dunnuck, has been a well-respected and independent positive voice for Washington wines for years. Our winemaker Chris Peterson first met Jeb back in the 2000s while at DeLille and they hit it off. Then shortly after Avennia's inaugural wine release in 2012, Jeb joined Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and reviewed our wines each year. As the most prolific wine writer for the Advocate from 2013 to 2017, Parker once described Jeb as a "younger version of himself". Year after year, his positive and enthusiastic reception of our wines has been encouraging.
