Walla Walla Travel

Last week we spent a few days out in the Washington State wine country. We spent the first day in Prosser and enjoyed visits to Hogue Cellars, Desert Wind, Alexandria Nicole Cellars, Kiona and Chandler Reach. All of these wineries do a very nice job and are well worth the visit.

We spent two night out in Walla Walla enjoying the small town charm and great wineries. We really enjoyed the wines at Dusted Valley, Basil Cellars, Tamarack and Isenhower Cellars. It is great tasting wines in Walla Walla because there are great wines across the board. Here are a few pictures from our romp. We visited wineries, a lavender farm and wheat fields!
