This is the heart of Washington wine country. Population: more than 120 wineries and 3,000 acres of vineyards. Walla Walla, born a sleepy agricultural town below southeastern Washington's Blue Mountains, blossomed into wine central in the late twentieth century, its dining scene following shortly after. For full immersion into the traits and triumphs of the Washington grape, no place is finer.
