WALLA WALLA VALLEY IS VIBRANT WITH AUTUMN COLORS, beckoning people to sit back, relax, and sip on the region’s highly anticipated, newly released wines. During Fall Release Weekend, running from November 4-6 this year, wine enthusiasts from near and far are invited to be among the first to enjoy and acquire newly released wines from Walla Walla winemakers. Many of these wines are only available by visiting the wineries and tasting rooms in-person. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the history of the winery, talking directly to the winemakers about the new vintages. It’s also a great time for wine lovers to gain insight into the creative winemaking process and to sample some exceptional wines that simply can’t be found anywhere else.
For those looking for a winter adventure in Walla Walla Valley and want to usher in the holiday season in a unique way, the Holiday Barrel Tasting Weekend is a festive way to enjoy and experience wine in a rare form: directly from the barrel. This three-day event is filled with food, wine, music, festive décor and most importantly, the opportunity to sample future releases straight from the wine barrel. Wineries, lodging establishments, and restaurants revel in the holiday spirit with holiday promotions, unique gift packages, and more. This is the perfect opportunity for people to kick off the holiday season, purchase some of the region’s most celebrated bottles from local winemakers as holiday gifts, or to take home to enjoy with your favorite holiday meal or at a festive gathering. Look here at the events calendar to see the variety of options there are to fill your itinerary.
