Washington Wine Month

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

6-8-13 wine tour 021Many of you may not know this, but March is “Washington Wine Month”.  What does that mean exactly? It means that now is the perfect time to visit Walla Walla and taste some of our award winning wines! The warmer, sunny days we have been experiencing makes for great wine tour weather.  Also, the wineries are not as crowded this time of year (compared to the big release weekends) so you get more personalized one-on-one attention from the tasting room staffs.

If you are looking for an experience above & beyond your typical wine Northstar Blending Experiencetour, we suggest you give the Blending Experience at Northstar Winery a try. This is a hands-on opportunity to immerse yourself in the art of blending world-class wine. Following a brief presentation on Washington state’s wine-growing regions, you will be guided through a barrel tasting of four distinct Merlots from four different growing regions of Washington, along with a Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Using glass beakers, graduated cylinders and other wine making equipment, compose YOUR OWN one-of-a-kind bottle of Northstar, complete with a custom label, from the same blending components that their winemaker uses to craft their acclaimed Merlot-based blends.  Hours: 1:30pm Thurs-Monday 90 minute experience (by appointment only).  Up to 12 guests.  Price: $85/person or $65 for club members. For more info call 866-484-7828.

February Fun!

Sunday, February 8th, 2015

February is for Foodies 2This Month we’re celebrating more than St. Valentines Day. Here in Walla Walla, FEBRUARY IS FOR FOODIES! For those of you who haven’t heard about this before, it is a time when many of the local restaurants prepare special menus that are only offered in February.  Walla Walla is home to many award winning chefs  AND an amazing culinary arts department at Walla Walla Community College which means there are many options to choose from! (There is even an opportunity for you to take a cooking class with some of these chefs on Feb. 14 at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Feb. 21 at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel.) In addition to the restaurants many wineries are sweetening the deal with special cheese & chocolate pairings! (Dunham Cellars has a chocolate made exclusively for them by a company in San Francisco. While many other wineries & tasting rooms offer amazing choices from our very own Bright’s Candies).

limo wine tour 001A number of lodging venues are offering “February Is For Foodies” rates or “Sweetheart Packages” so be sure to ask for those when booking your rooms.  We would love to pick you up at your hotel, Bed & Breakfast, or Vacation Rental and take you to the wineries and restaurants of your choice.  You can find more details at wallawalla.org. We look forward to seeing you soon! 🙂
