This October, we asked our wineries and grape growers a simple question: what song are you crushing to?

Sleight of Hand Cellars, Cote Bonneville, Kiona Vineyards & Winery

Pun intended, we wanted to know what music our winemakers, harvest crews, and farmers were listening to on loop. What track, or album, kept them going during the busiest time of year? As if harvest is not challenging enough, this year and season brought many obstacles, but our industry, as always, got through it the same way they get through anything: together. One sip at a time.

We are thrilled to release our very own #WAwine Spotify Playlist, showcasing 30+ songs that played an instrumental role this year. We all know music has a way of lodging itself in time, and so in a way, this playlist also acts as a time capsule for #WaHarvest2020.

Since we can't show you on Spotify which winery chose which song, you'll find the full list below. You'll also see a link to listen to the playlist on Spotify. We expect this list to grow, so bookmark this post, and come back to see what other songs got us through this time of year. And may we suggest: the next time you open up a bottle of wine from one of the below wineries to lift your spirits, pair that glass with the song below that lifted theirs.
