Relax with the wines of Walla Walla Valley | Visitor Guide
The first Italian settlers of the Walla Walla Valley, known for its fertile fields and agriculture, often planted wine grapes and made their own wines.
The burgeoning wine industry has spread from this heritage to the American wine-growing area of ââWalla Walla Valley in Washington State and partly spread to the northeastern corner of Oregon.
The region has grown into a renowned wine producer and year round wine destination.
Over 120 wineries have made their home in the Walla Walla Valley and produce a wide variety of internationally renowned wines.
The most cultivated and produced grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, but white, rosÃ© and many other red wines can be found throughout the valley.
Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance, a coalition of wineries in the region, hosts numerous wine events each year in addition to a wide range of offerings from individual tasting rooms in the region, such as the following:
