Washington State produces not only a Super Bowl winning football team, but a mouthwatering highly rated white wine. The state of Washington makes some of the best wines in the U.S. and that's due to the awesome microclimates. Columbia Valley, a well known region in the state is known for award winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.

Chateau Ste Michelle Pinot Gris sounds like it might be a snooty expensive wine, yet it is none of the above. This Columbia Valley wine is predominately Pinot Gris with a tiny bit of Viognier blended in. The Viognier adds a bit of floral notes to this wine that complement the crisp melon and subtle lemon flavors. Sipping this wine you'll notice spice that lingers on the finish. It is a perfect light fluffy white wine that won't let your palate down.

Now, how much will this cost you? One of the great things about Chateau Ste Michelle wines is that you get a high quality wine at a very reasonable price. You can find this wine in most wine shops and restaurants in the area. Here are a few local shops and their prices.

Total Wine and More (Alexandria, McLean) $9.99
Costco (Arlington) $8
Safeway $9
Trader Joe's (Clarendon) $9
