Washington-The Perfect Climate for Wine

The Washington State Wine Commission has the slogan-“Washington-The Perfect Climate For Wine.”  Having recently returned from a Walla Walla Wine Tour:  http://www.washingtonwine.org/explore/# – We can attest to the perfect climate and that’s not just about the weather!!

Washington is the perfect climate for wine also due in part to the people in the industry.  Our tour of Walla Walla vineyards, wineries, and tasting rooms left us with new found friends and a deeper love for the wine business.

Wine Lifestyle

We toured 3-6 tasting rooms daily during our week stay in Walla Walla.  Our stay began at the Red Door Cottage:  http://www.vrbo.com/282342 which allowed us easy access to downtown and all the nearby wine districts.  We ended our stay at the beautiful Walla Faces Inn at the Vineyard: http://www.wallawallainns.com/vineyard/default.cfm where we relaxed among the vines, swam in the pool and refreshed with the sunset for our trip back to Siloam.

This was our first time touring in Walla Walla -we would like to send out a thank you  and recognize our new friends at:
