From Seattle: Walla Walla Stomp Weekend (3 days)

September 21 - 23, 2018. Make wine the way your grandparents did. Pedicures not included.

It’s time to get out of the city and for this weekend the journey and the destination are equal parts delicious and savory. Mountain passes, expansive views and picturesque vineyards create the backdrop as we explore Eastern Washington's Wine Country. Savor the small-town charms of Walla Walla along with the world-class wines and colorful history, and celebrate the last days of summer with a traditional barefoot grape stomp at Canoe Ridge winery.

This trip includes roundtrip transportation from Seattle and other attractions along the route.
