Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Walla Walla Wineries Get A Free Pass

With more than fifty wineries pouring wine, sadly, I had to skip some of my favorite wineries to bring you the latest info on Walla Walla wines. I hope none of these reliable friends feel slighted because they get a free pass. You can count on them. They are all wineries that pretty consistently turn out excellent wine. Here they are in alphabetical order with a few comments:

  • Dunham - great Syrah and Cab
  • Dusted Valley - great Syrah and Viognier
  • K Vintner - Syrah, Syrah, Syrah
  • Nicholas Cole - high end
  • Reininger - always excellent, especially the Merlot
  • Sapoleil - obscure winery making excellent Syrah
  • Syzygy - good reds
  • Three Rivers - huge range, excellent vineyard designated Syrahs
  • Walla Walla Vintners - great Cab Franc
  • Whitman - Narcissa
  • Woodward Canyon - huge range of serious wines
  • Yellow Hawk - award winnning wines
  • Zerba - kind of a hybrid of many stripes, an Oregon winery in the Walla Walla AVA, another award winner

Taste Walla Walla really should be a two day event, or at least twice as long.
