Walla Walla gets doused

As I write, a hard, extended rain falls on Walla Walla. The rain has been falling for over an hour accompanied by an electrical storm. I have not ventured to the outdoor street dance downtown that is part of Vintage Walla Walla, but I can only fear the worst.

After the blending seminar at Les Collines Vineyard today (more on this event to follow), we focused largely on wineries we have not had the occasion to visit on previous trips to Walla Walla. These wineries included Sleight of Hand Cellars, Cavu, and Dusted Valley Vintners. We also visited Kontos Cellars and Trio Vintners, two wineries we visited previously, located at the incubator region of the airport. We finished up at Isenhower Cellars.

More on the weekend in the coming days.

  1. Sean -

    That whole day at Les Collines sounded amazing; can't wait to hear more about it.

    As I'm here drowning in final exams/projects, it's nice to live vicariously through you this weekend.

  2. Paul, study away. I will carry the banner. Good luck.

  3. Hi Paul -
    Thanks for stopping back at Trio Vintners during your Vintage Walla Walla visit. It's really great when people take the time to try our wines again - and over time - because of course they evolve. We really like getting feedback from people who have tried our wines before because that perspective is very meaningful to us. There are so many wineries and I know it's impossible to get to all the ones you want to see - so we appreciate a repeat visit even more. The Vintage event is great because it does get most of the WW winemakers under one tent. Anyway I hope you liked what you tasted at Trio! Cheers!
