Hollywood & Vines

Actor Jason Priestley, known for his role on "Beverly Hills 90210", was in Walla Walla last week, along with broadcast journalist Terry David Mulligan. They were here to capture the highlights of Walla Walla's wining and dining experience for a new TV program they will be co-hosting - "Hollywood & Vines." At this time the TV program will only appear in Canada, but negotiations are under way for possibly US and European viewing. Sonoma and Napa Valley will also be showcased.

Priestley, although has vintages of Walla Walla wines in his private collection, this was his first visit to the "new darling of the wine industry." He commented that Walla Walla has "...great juice."

If Priestley took part in Walla Walla's dining experience, he visited either 26 Brix, Creek Town Cafe, or Whitehouse Crawford. Interesting enough for Friday's lunch, his hosts, Christophe Baron from Cayuse Winery and Charles Smith of K-Vitners, took our Hollywood guest to the Walla Walla Worm Ranch. A bait shop that also sells mighty tasty burritos and tacos. Dining at it's best!
