The Best Time to Visit Walla Walla Wineries this Year

While visiting the impressive collection of Walla Walla wineries is a fantastic idea any time of year, there’s a consensus in Washington Wine Country that spring is one of the most popular seasons due to the mild weather and as the vineyards come to life with blossoming vines. While fall is known as a bustling time with harvest, spring is a bit on the quieter side, which means fewer crowds at tasting rooms and more personalized attention from wine ambassadors leading the tastings or tours themselves.

One of the best times to visit the nearby Walla Walla wineries is during the highly anticipated Walla Walla wine month starting in April and the Spring Release weekend in early May. The Walla Walla wineries downtown and out at the vineyard locations are abuzz with events, special tastings, and unique tours. 

Before you start planning your getaway and booking tastings at the Walla Walla wineries, you’ll want to secure your lodging, and our bed and breakfast Walla Walla, is one of the best places to stay! With only seven beautifully appointed guest rooms, you’ll never encounter unwanted noise or crowded areas. We often overhear guests saying they feel like they have our expansive mansion all to themselves! Our innkeepers and staff are on hand to provide concierge services around the clock, so always feel free to ask for help with recommendations or personalized recommendations. There’s so much to discover at Cameo Heights Mansion; book your room today!
