Walla Walla is located in the southeast portion of Washington state. This region is substantially drier than the coastal regions of Washington State. The Cascade Range and Olympic Range of mountains bottle up the rain on the west side of the state, and in Walla Walla the sunny days and relative warmer climate allows for the production of many more durable grape varietals. The growing season allows for plump, ripe grapes at harvest, and the arid climate creates opportunity for bold, balanced wines. Though several grape thrive here, we frequently try the Syrah, Merlot, and Chardonnay because those showcase the unique characteristics of this region.
