We attended the Holiday Barrel Tasting in Walla Walla the first weekend in December, and was very impressed. It was a fun, festive event that was well coordinated, with 68 participating wineries. we were only there for a day, but still managed to get in 8 of those wineries. The weather was sunny and cold, but made for a beautiful day.
We stopped in on a few favorites like Woodward Canyon, L'Ecole No. 41, Longshadow and Dusted Valley, but took in a few we hadn't been to before like Basel, Chateau Rollat, Trust and Locati. The winemakers were at most of the wineries, so it's always fun to meet and talk with them about their wines. Besides the regular wine tasting from multiple bottles of their wine, most also had barrel tastings, but not all.
If you haven't been and are looking for a fun holiday event for next year, I recommend that you put it on your calendar for next year.
