Walla Walla Valley’s fantastic wines
The Walla Walla Valley ranks as one of the Pacific Northwest’s most important wine regions and features one of its highest concentrations of wineries.
Today, Walla Walla has about 130 wineries, similar to Woodinville and areas in Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. Walla Walla also is home to some of the Northwest’s premier and most famous producers, including Leonetti Cellar, Woodward Canyon Winery, L’Ecole No. 41, Reininger Winery, Seven Hills Winery and Dunham Cellars – just to name a few.
While the Walla Walla Valley has more than 2,500 acres of wine grapes, the wineries here also bring in fruit from outside of the immediate area, particularly for white wine production.
Here are a dozen examples of wines from Walla Walla Valley wineries that we’ve tasted in recent weeks. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly.
