Onions and Wine

By Linda Tancs

Located in the southeast corner of Washington State and nestled at the foot of the Blue Mountains, Walla Walla (a Native American term meaning “many waters”) is renowned for its sweet onion, the state vegetable. But in recent years the wine is giving this hallmark bulb a run for its money. Recognized among the finest wine regions in the nation, the city boasts more than 120 wineries amid 2,800 acres of grapes. Wineries and tasting rooms are scattered throughout six main districts, so expert-led tours and shuttles offer a convenient way to experience all the varietals that the region has to offer.
