Earlier this month, D and I spent a weekend in Walla Walla in the midst of some of Washington's greatest wineries; some 140 and growing. Of course we could only visit a few but oh, my; the wines were wonderful. Eastern Washington is red wine country; cab sauvs, merlots, and fabulous blends. We tasted many great wines and bought more than we had planned.
At L' Ecole Winery 41, our last stop the day we returned to Seattle, some lovely tasting wines greeted us in an old schoolhouse converted into a tasting room and retail facility. What made me laugh was a letter posted on the wall, from a youngster who was likely dragged from winery to winery as his or her parents tasted Northwest reds and whites.
Check it out. It'll make you smile.
