Walla Walla is the home to one of our favorite Washington Wineries - Forgeron Cellars! If you are a fan of French reds, then this winery is for you. Bonus- they have a satellite tasting room in Woodinville wine country too!
Looking back on my unpublsihed posts from last year, I have a whole series on Walla Walla Wine Country that I have yet to share! I will be posting a new Walla Walla feature each week until I run out, starting today at Woodward Canyon Winery! If you want to learn more about Walla Walla wines, you can always click on the "Visit Walla Walla" tab on my right-hand menu. Cheers!
Amavi Cellars is a must visit when checking out the south side of Walla Walla. One of their most notable features is their big deck perfect for watching the sunset... amazing views!
The Cherry Chalet is a quaint but modern Bed and Breakfast just outside of Walla Walla. It is a short driving distance to many wineries of interest, and features a fresh home cooked breakfast each morning. Plus, they are family friendly! Something hard to find in wine country.
L'Ecole No. 41 is one of my favorite wineries in Washington State! They are located in Eastern Washington just outside of Walla Walla, and are well established as one of the older and accomplished vineyards in the area. Their Reisling and Luminesce are two of my favorite white wines for sipping, and their Estate Perigee and Syrah are two beautiful reds that I love to hang onto for a special occasion!
The Monteillet Fromagerie is a small farm outside of Walla Walla where Joan and Pierre-Louis Monteillet make their own fresh goat and sheep milk cheeses. You can pay their darling farm a visit by calling ahead, or visit their baa baa tasting room on Main Street in downtown Walla Walla for samples and shopping!
Forgeron Cellars in Walla Walla Washington has an incredible lineup of big, bold Bordeaux style red wines. Our absolute favorite was the Cabernet Sauvignon. They also have a tasting room in Woodinville, only 30 minutes outside of Seattle!
Seven Hills Winery in Walla Walla is one of the older and more respected wineries in the area. Their tasting room is located in an easily accessible location in downtown Walla Walla, walking distance from the Marcus Whitman Hotel and dozens of other wineries to taste at. They feature Bordeaux style reds and we enjoyed every sip we tasted. Truly, a must-visit while you are enjoying Walla Walla wine country!
We are headed to Walla Walla Washington this weekend for a quick getaway. We have only been once before, and I have my checklist of all the places we need to try ready to go! What are some of your recommendations while we are out there? Have you ever been?
