From the Ag Information Network, I’m Bob Larson with today’s Fruit Grower Report. ‘Wander Walla Walla’ is a great way to enjoy the Number One wine region in America, according to USA Today’s America’s Ten Best, for the third straight year.

Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance Executive Director, Liz Knapke says the valley gives you ‘Wanderers’ plenty to do, see and taste …

KNAPKE … “The Walla Walla valley is in both Washington and Oregon. So, there’s opportunities in both states, So, a lot of times we say, Washington Wine or Oregon Wine, but really Walla Walla valley spans both of those borders so there’s so much possible here.”

The AVA, Knapke says is now well established …

KNAPKE … “Yes, we are coming up on our 40th anniversary in 2024, of the AVA, and the Wine Alliance itself is in its third decade. So, it just entered into our third decade of existence so, yeah, things are growing and continue to grow here in the valley.”

And the wine industry, Knapke says was a natural for the valley …

KNAPKE … “Wine’s an agricultural product, you know, and I think it weaves into everything that is done here in the valley, from onions to wheat to grains and beans and all those types of things. I think it’s just part of the day-to-day life in this bountiful valley and agricultural community.”
