Letter: Canceling vintage because of smoke is a troubling first

To the editor — I have been associated with the Washington Wine Industry for over 40 years as a graduate student involved in the Wine Project at Wazzu in the late '70s, as a vigneron for over 25 years, as professor of viticulture/enology for 10 years and for a winery to 'cancel' a vintage due to smoke taint is a first that threatens the viability of all wineries going forward.
