Here is a little tour of the art, the scenery,and the vibe of a few wineries I have recently visited in Walla Walla Washington. I love saying that :)
Approaching the town of Walla Walla on the outskirts sits a winery called Waterbrook. This is their brand new tasting room. What I am beginning to find fascinating is the winery art. Each place has it's own vibe and style. In this the third largest winery in the State of Washington, we found some interesting creatures on the outside and some fun oil paintings on the inside.
Driving out into the country we found some great vistas.
Here is a winery where the wine maker/artist is from Italy. His paintings were all around the building.
This was a small tasting room in downtown with a youthful vibe called Righteous. Josh McDaniel The winemaker was only 21!
Back out into the countryside we visited a really upscale winery by appointment only.
When we walked into the amazing tasting room we were greeted by several pieces of Chihuly glass art. He is based out of Seattle Washington. He exhibits around the world. Do check this link out for a peek.
This chandelier was amazing. The bottom picture shows the scale of the piece.
I was completely taken back by how much this sleepy little town has grown up in the last five or so years. The downtown is amazing, full of shops, restaurants, and tasting rooms. So much to see, I will have to go back for several trips this summer. It is just a pleasant 45 minute drive from my house.
