For the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance, a June event is a whole new vintage.
A new event is replacing the former Vintage Walla Walla wine event. Celebrate Walla Walla Valley Wine will bring together more than 70 Walla Walla Valley winemakers with several Napa Valley winemakers and well-known wine critics will explore one of the most widely recognized red wine grape varieties: cabernet sauvignon.
Special tastings of rare vintage wines, wine-of-a-kind winemaker dinners, receptions with winemakers and more will be available for participants. Tickets to the various events within the three-day celebration in June range from $50 for a panel discussion and tastings to $100 for winemaker dinners and more.
Growing conditions, wine styles and wines of two of the world’s leading wine regions — the Walla Walla and Napa valleys — will be explored.
The event is presented by Banner Bank and Wine & Spirits Magazine. It runs June 20-22. Tickets can be purchased at wallawallawine.com/celebrate or by phone at 526-3117.
