Walla Walla Wine Weekend
January 20, 2008



We spent the weekend in the south east corner of Washington, visiting Uncle Mike at his new home in the Walla Walla wine region. Being the good host that he is, he took us on a tour of some of the best vineyards in the appellation where we were able to sample a plethora of vinous viniferous varietals, pleasing our palates whilst abusing the credit card in the name of stocking the wine cellar.

The drive to Walla Walla from Pullman is one that neither of us had done before, and it was nice to see the various small towns along the way. It is certainly an area to which we would return so that we could do some further exploration. We took a five mile detour on this journey near the town of Dayton to see what was simply marked as a “Historical Marker.” The marker ended up being a field in which a Lewis and Clark encampment was “recreated” with life-sized steel cut outs of people doing what they would have been doing at camp. It was a bit surreal, but certainly worth the detour.

It was an enjoyable weekend and a fun way to add to our wine collection. Only another seven official appellations in the state to go!
