I blackmailed Jim into taking me to Walla Walla for the Holiday Barrel (Dec ’09) tasting for our 19th anniversary. It was definitely worth it. We had a great time, visiting with "old" friends and hopefully making new ones. I put the list of wineries together that we wanted/needed to taste at and it was long; too long to do in 2 days, so I had to pare it down. It was hard, I tell you! Those that we did get the chance to visit, thank you for such a great time. For those of you that we didn’t make the visit on this trip, sorry, no reflection on you, just a reflection of not enough time!

 

 

Here is the itinerary that we were able to fit in :)

So much wine, so little time. When we tasted wine in Walla Walla in May of 2005, there were about 80 bonded wineries (licenses), today, that number has doubled. I will keep coming back as long as there is wine to be tried :)
