Woodward Canyon is one of my favorite Washington wineries, and they were fundamental in building the Walla Walla wine industry. Recently they turned 40, and founder/owner Rick Small is still doing all the work! His essay on the 40th anniversary is full of nice personal anecdotes on building a winery and industry from scratch, where none existed before.
