My boyfriend and I are visiting Seattle and Portland from New York City in a few weeks. We were planning to drive from Seattle to Portland but take a 2 day detour to check out some vineyards. I understand that this will take us off track from our journey, but it's part of our Northwest adventure.
My research has led me to believe that Walla Walla would be a good place to visit because of all the vineyards.
My question is: Can anyone suggest some great vineyards to visit in Walla Walla? Or if this location is not the best place to visit for our purposes, is there another suggestion of location/winery in Oregon or Washington? We are open to anything as this is our first wine trip and know little beyond the fact that we enjoy wines from this region. Thanks in advance for the help!
