A short day into Walla Walla to meet Barry & Scott who got here a day early.
We expected one hill but had the gift of 4 unmarked extras. The dry wheat fields that are ready for harvest might not make clear that Walla Walla is rich in its water resources. The name itself means “many waters” due to its many rivers and aquifers. Being an oaisis in the desert interior of the northwest has kept its population relatively large over the years and fueled the birth of this industry. Its first commercial winery was formed in 1977 and today it has over 100. They are everywhere!
