Famed Vineyard Owner Sick With West Nile

I awoke this morning to find out through my local paper, the Tri-City Herald, that Paul Champoux has fallen ill to the West Nile Virus. Champoux, known all over the world for his amazing Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the heart of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, was sickened a few days ago by what he and his family thought was the flu. After several tests, it was confirmed that he is suffering from the West Nile Virus.

My thoughts and prayers are with Paul, Judy, and everyone at Chateau Champoux as he recovers.
