OVERVIEWTOP STORIESTASTING TRAILSVIDEOS

The Walla Walla Valley is quickly becoming Washington's most prestigious and talked-about wine region out of the state's five appellations. It is also the most remote, located on the southeastern border of Washington and Oregon. Named after the city of Walla Walla in Washington, this region produces some top notch Bordeaux varietals on its 1,800 acres of vines, namely Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon: Walla Walla's two signature varietals.

The Walla Walla appellation prides itself on not only its superb wines, but also its sustainable growing practices and camaraderie between wineries and winemakers. This good-will between wine enthusiasts is expressed through the valley's Institute of Enology and Viticulture, where the next generation of winemakers from around the world aspire to make Walla Walla "the next Napa". From wineries that founded the fame of the region in the late 1970s to recently created wineries with high hopes of becoming the next stars on the American wine scene, the Walla Walla Valley appellation will surely continue to grow in repute as more and more people experience these exceptional wines.
