December 16, 2017

Itinerary by Casey McClellan, founder and winemaker
Combine the eye of an artist, the pragmatism of a farmer and the curiosity of a scientist with the outlook of a traveler and you’ll have a sense of the day the famed winemaker Casey McClellan has created. It’s a sensitive walk through town that pulls together his childhood in Walla Walla with his life as one of the Valley’s most well-respected winemakers.
A little antiquing, time for wandering past some local treasures and recommendations for winery visits complete an itinerary that may take you a couple of days. When you stop by Seven Hills be sure to sample the Bordeaux blends.

Any Weekend

Itinerary by Steve Robertson, owner
For a guy who has devoted heart and soul to The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, Walla Walla Valley’s newest sub-AVA, Steve Robertson’s itinerary unites the land with the person and the wine. This is an itinerary that will introduce you to areas for hiking, biking, walking and exploring in diverse parts of the Valley. It could easily form the backbone of a multiple day visit to the Valley, too. 
From small, boutique wineries in the Southside of the Valley to some under-the-radar drive-ins (with stellar food), the places and people will show you a down-to-earth, fascinating look at wines of the Walla Walla Valley…with a side of fries.

Itinerary by Ryan Raber, winemaker
Tertulia Cellars, located a few miles south of downtown Walla Walla, is home to winemaker Ryan Raber’s Whistling Hills Vineyard (ask about their other vineyards too). Tertulia Cellars is the home of the Walla Walla Valley Pétanque Club (a game a bit like boules or bocce) and can be played with a glass of wine in one hand.
Ryan has the “inside” recommendation on how to get the best cocktail at the Marcus Whitman Vineyard Lounge, where to find the best chicken burrito, and an idea for where to bring the kids when you come back.

“We get asked by out-of-town friends and guests that stop into our tasting room where they should go tasting next or what restaurant they should check out,” said Rick Small, first-generation owner of Woodward Canyon Winery. “Everyone seems to want to do what the locals do, and we love to get a new up-and-coming winery on their radar or tell them about where to get a great cocktail in town when they’re done with wine for the day. We hope that visitors to the Walla Walla Valley enjoy some of our favorite places in town, and continue to come back and visit us, year-round.”
