Washington Wine Master Bob Betz
March 21, 2017•20 min
Bob Betz is the founder, patriarch and guiding light of Betz Family Winery. His pursuit of winemaking began in the early 1970s when he and his wife Cathy criss-crossed European vineyards to better understand the why and how of crafting fine wine. His philosophy is pretty simple: focus on what the vineyards have provided. Start with the highest quality fruit you can, treat it vigorously when necessary, gently most of the time, and stay out of its way but watch it closely. Allow the wines to develop slowly, and make sure they provide exceptional pleasure.
Betz Family Winery is featured at Taste Washington, celebrating 20 years of talented winemakers, award-winning chefs, educational seminars and fan-favorite events. Don’t miss the Grand Tasting this Saturday and Sunday at the Century Link Field Event Center. Info at TasteWashington.org
