I'm Susan Allen with The Fruit Grower Report. I invite you to join me in Walla Walla June 16-18 to explore one of the worlds most renowned grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon; I sat down with Duane Wollmuth Executive Director, Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance yesterday to learn more about their signature event.

Wollmuth: "Celebrate Walla Walla Valley Wine is our signature wine event for the valley, it happens each year in June. A key part of it is that we focus on a different varietal either Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah. We invite guest wine makers in from other leading wine regions, around the world. This year we have a gentleman from Millahue, Chile a gentleman representing the Bordeaux varietal and another guest from Napa Valley. They will be on a wine maker panel with three of our local wine makers to talk about their regions and their wineries and also get a chance to taste their wines."

There are some other unique venues as well?

Wollmuth: "There's actually a number of different sessions over the three days. Including the panel, we have a welcome kick off which is free, but you do need to get a ticket for that, I know there is a limited number left and then we have wine receptions and dinners as well over the three days.

I heard it was nearly sold out?

Wollmuth: "Well, there is a handful of tickets left for the welcome kick off Friday morning that's from 8:30 -10:00 if people go to celebrate Walla Walla.com they can find the tickets there. Then we have some tickets for the wine maker panel. You'll get a chance to listen about these wine regions around the world and get to taste their wine, and we have two winemakers dinners remaining that haven't been sold out yet for Saturday Night."
