Anytime's a good time for wine! I was never really a drinker of it until college, my roommate and her family were well-versed in all sorts of Washington wines, they featured a hefty wine cellar, and when I'd come to visit we always went on tours. I quickly took a liking to cabernet sauvignon, a dark red. As I age, like a fine wine, I have come to appreciate Washington State as one of the premier spots to taste all sorts of delicious crushed grapes. I now realize the difference between a dessert wine and what pairs with the main course!

If you weren't aware, people travel from all over the world to partake in our Yakima Valley wine selections and so in honor of all things fancy and delicious, here are some great spots you should definitely check out!

What Are the Signature Drinks From Every State?

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.

From product innovations to major recalls, Stacker researched what happened in food history every year since 1921, according to news and government sources.
