Freezing Fog in Walla Walla

I’ve heard Big Ed and Judy talk about the freezing fog in Walla Walla, but I had no idea just how beautiful it would be. Yesterday was 30* and foggy, which I thought was perfect weather to do some wine tasting. Little did I know I would be driving into an awe phenomenon. My tasting […]

Long Lost Sublime – A Wine Tasting Tale

Long Lost Sublime – A Wine Tasting Tale

Yesterday my beau asks me, “Are you going to work today or what?” I chuckled, “I don’t know… I kind of like this office.

Industry Research Day

I am often asked to suggest other tasting rooms when Walla Walla visitors come to the winery. But even though I’ve been here a month, I have not had the chance to browse around. Between harvest and being the new kid on the block, I’ve been busy! I had to negotiate a day off to […]
