“The Summer Winemaker Dinner Series offers attendees an insider’s experience to the food and wine scene of the Walla Walla Valley. It’s a rare opportunity to wine and dine with winemakers while enjoying cuisine prepared by celebrated chefs,” said Robert Hansen, Executive Director of Walla Walla Valley Wine. “We are excited to be able to offer this intimate event after an unusual year.”
