Walla Walla Walla Walla Wine


We arrived to Walla Walla, Washington coming from cold Idaho to hot Eastern Washington.  Also, my allergies came along too!  I’ve been going through multiple allergy seasons and allergens this whole trip.  Does it make me slow down? NOPE.  Does it make me sniffly and annoying for everyone around me?  YEP.  I DON’T MIND!

We found a RV park and thought it’d be fun to stay there. Because we love RV’s.  And old people. It was pretty awesome.  From there we headed to L’Ecole No. 41.  It was a pretty interesting experience going to a winery and a wine region with no grapes around.  We were confused, but later learned that not a lot of grapes are actually grown in Walla Walla, but in the whole of Columbia Valley there are tons of vineyards.  There is a lot of hay in Walla Walla.  The winery was awesome though, pick up that stuff if you see it at your local store!

 

We tried a few more places and then retired back to the RV/campsite palace.

The next morning we were up early to go to Amavi, which was a great find, recommended to us by our local wine shop.  We had a picnic on their deck in the sun, looking at the small amount of vineyards that were in Walla Walla.  We found a couple more wineries, and was even invited to a harvest crush in the fall.  Tempting.

Walla Walla was fun and the wines we had there were all pretty good.  The town itself was kind of weird in its layout, it was like an agricultural town that is trying to be fancy.  It was neat to see a wine region that wasn’t super touristy.  Also – apparently most of the wineries in the area aren’t open on Mondays and Tuesdays because it’s so slow.  And guess what days we were there?  Those days!  It was still lovely to sit in the sun with some wine, sneezing, and having a nice picnic and getting a tan.  And saying Walla Walla over and over again.  Cause that never gets boring.

Up next….VANCOUVER, BC!
