Walla Walla Winemaker's Gallery

It's a great idea!

If you are a up-and-coming new winemaker imagine yourself in a winemaking gallery that can accommodate up to 12 separate, small production wineries. All working together, but still independently under one roof. There will be retail support with a on-site tasting room to distribute wine to the area visitors.

Construction of the 13,000-square-foot co-op is expected to start this spring, but no location has been published at this time. The Port of Walla Walla is expected to do a wine incubator with five buildings for wineries. Who will finish first? In any event, I think there is certainly room for everyone.

For more information on this gallery, check out Walla Walla Winemaker's Gallery.

Thanks for your comments on the Winemaker's Gallery. We are pretty excited about the project and it's nice to hear from all those who think it's something special too. Since your posting we have located our site - it's at the airport, adjacent to the new incubator wineries. Cool blog...looks like you're having fun!
