2023 Walla Walla Wine On Tour Tasting Events Announced for Seattle, Portland & Boise

Walla Walla Valley wineries will travel to Seattle, Portland and Boise to share the distinctive terroir-driven wines crafted by wineries of the Walla Walla Valley.


WALLA WALLA, WA. (November 17, 2022)  Walla Walla Valley wineries are hitting the road in February and March 2023, with stops in Seattle, Portland and Boise. During Walla Walla Wine On Tour, Walla Walla Valley Wine will bring over 35 area wineries to each city to share wine crafted from the unique growing sites of the Walla Walla Valley AVA and surrounding areas.

“As the Walla Walla Valley continues to pique curiosities around the globe, these events provide an unparalleled opportunity for consumers, trade and media to engage directly with wineries while staying close to home,” says Liz Knapke, Executive Director of Walla Walla Valley Wine. “The tastings in Seattle, Portland and Boise offer something new for everyone – whether you’re a Walla Walla Wine connoisseur, planning your first trip to the Valley or simply just enjoy wine.”

The Walla Walla Wine On Tour tasting events have been hosted in Seattle and Portland dating back to 2012, but 2023 will mark the first tasting event held in Boise, ID.

“We are excited to welcome Boise as a new addition to the event lineup,” says Knapke. “We know that Boiseans are interested in wine from the Walla Walla Valley, and we look forward to offering this new opportunity for them to engage with wineries and winemakers from the region.”

Each Walla Walla Wine On Tour stop features tasting opportunities for wine trade and media, as well as wine consumers in general.  Each stop will include an educational panel for members of the trade and media, followed by a tasting for these members of the industry. In the evening, a tasting will be held for wine consumers. Tickets to the consumer tasting are $75, and include all wine tastings (within legal consumption limits) and light hors d’oeuvres. Advance ticket reservation is required, and all attendees must be 21 or older to attend.  Tickets are on sale now at WallaWallaWine.com/Events.
