Introducing Lucha Vino

Based on Lucha Libre - the phenomenally popular form of Spanish & Mexican professional wrestling - Washington wines will do battle with wines from around the globe.

Each week there will be a new match that pits a select Washington wine against an out of state challenger.

Many challengers will be selected based on proximity to UCI cycling races which should provide a wide ranging global perspective to the match ups.  Other challengers will be selected based on arbitrary and seemingly random criteria - very similar to how the UCI applies the rules of professional cycling.

Combatants will be matched up based on vintage and varietal.  For blends the matchup will be determined based on the dominant varietal and best match on remaining grapes in the blend.

The battles are sure to be epic.

Let the games begin!
