Sustainable Vineyards

  • WWCC Main Parking Lot 500 Tausick Way Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

Vinea Vineyards is a network of winegrowers united by environmentally friendly and socially responsible growing practices. This tour will highlight four vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley appellation. 

At each stop we will be joined by Vinea Vineyards members who will describe the growing techniques, grape varietals grown, and the terroir effect of wine made from the fruit on each of their vineyards. We’ll learn of Vinea’s dedication to sustainability and its project to develop a certification program tailored specifically to the Walla Walla Valley.

We’ll begin at the Walla Walla Community College Enology & Viticulture Center, with a focus on Mill Creek vineyards that are grown in deep loess soils with annual precipitation that minimizes the need for irrigation. We will also hear about the College’s Viticulture Program.
