Wine About It

We spent most of the day wandering from winery to winery. Downtown Walla Walla is basically one after the other, the only problem  is deciding which ones to skip. You could easily wine taste for days just downtown.

We started the trip with a list of wineries we haven’t been to so we could try some new wines.  Some were great, some too expensive and a few just amazing.

K Vitners, also known as Charles Smith has  very good wine, especially their Syrah’s.

We headed to the airport to try a few new ones and revisit an old favorite.

Of course we had to pop into Sleight of Hands since we are members.

And luckily two of the wineries we are always hoping to visit but are always closed were open.

Va Piano was a great experience. Not only did they have playmates for the girls,

we met the winemaker. He gave us a taste of his Rose out of the barrel and although it wont be ready for months is was already delicious, all of his wines were five star.

We got to visit the cellar and witness the aftermath of a wedding proposal.

Hard to follow that but we still tried. Dusted Valley had some above decent wines and a large lot for the girls to run around.

We have done some pretty good damage in the wine department.

  1. We just got back! We especially loved Seven Hills Winery downtown, Brasserie Four (amazing french) for dinner, and we took a trip to Montiellet Fromagerie outside of the city so that we could learn more about how they make their cheeses and my daughter got to pet baby goats. We also grabbed some Huckleberry ice cream and Bright’s Candy shop. It was a lot of fun!
