Walla Walla builds on reputation as wine destination
In the past decade, the Walla Walla Valley has developed into a winemaking and wine-touring destination, thanks to the large number of wineries starting up in the region and the high quality of winemaking that has been taking place since Leonetti Cellar began in 1977.
Forty year later, there are nearly 150 wineries in the valley, and more than 2,000 acres of vineyards. The focus is on red wines, leading with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
Here are a dozen wines made from Walla Walla Valley grapes that we have tried recently. Ask for them at your favorite wine shop or call the wineries directly.
