Earlier this month, I took a take a trip to Walla Walla Washington to visit family. I was able to, (they insisted on it) take a good amount of the few days I was there to visit multiple wineries.

It’s amazing to me, how much Walla Walla has changed since I was a child. Back then, there were two or three restaurants that weren’t chains, that I can personally remember. Now, there are dozens of restaurants of all varieties

Over the course of two days, I tasted my way through the following wineries:

College Cellars, of the Enology and Viticulture Center

Lagana – run by a graduate of the Enology & Viticulture Center

Lodmell Cellars

Sui Lei Winery

Goose Ridge Cellars

Eternal

Corazon

Aleromb

And one or two more that I tasted through, without taking notes. I just wanted to enjoy their wines.

It was a real pleasure to meet so many wonderful people, of all ages, who were so in love with wine. It was a rare pleasure for me, since it’s so rare, out here in Montana, that I get to talk about wine with people who know about it. Like any passion, it has it’s own language.

Over the next few days, I’ll be writing about my experiences with those wineries.
