A Tasting at Long Shadows Winery & More
When Allen Shoup set out to create Long Shadows Winery more than 20 years ago, he had a vision. He wanted to combine the beautifully grown fruit in Washington with the talents of winemakers from around the world. Those winemakers now consist of Gilles Nicault as director of winemaking and viticulture, Randy Dunn, John Duval, Philippe Melka, Michel Rolland, Armin Diel, and father-and-son duo Ambrogio and Giovani Folonari. These are the minds that make Long Shadows Winery one of the best in Washington.

Take in the stunning views of the Blue Mountains while you sip on selections from the Long Shadows Winery Portfolio Tasting, or join the knowledgeable wine ambassadors on The Inside Story with a barrel tasting and tour. Reservations are required.
