Wall Street Journal Visits College Cellars of Walla Walla

How a College's Budding Vintners Helped Walla Walla Create a Buzz
January 4, 2008

WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- Most colleges try to discourage students' fondness for drink. Walla Walla Community College not only encourages students to enjoy alcohol, it also bottles and sells the stuff...
A few weeks before Stan Clarke died, instructor of the Enology and Viticulture Institute of Walla Walla, he contacted students and past students to be his guests for a “reunion” and to meet journalist, SUDEEP REDDY. Reddy is a reporter for the Wall Street Journal and was writing an article about the enology and viticulture program. You will find the rest of this article here.

The article tells about the program and also mentions a few of the graduates who are now owners of their own wineries, like Jill Noble of Couvillion and Denise Slattery and Steve Michener, co-owners of Trio Vintners, both wineries in the Walla Walla area.

As things were winding down at the reception, I was walking out the building and Reddy stopped me and asked if I had a minute to visit with him. Darn - - I didn’t make copy, but it’s still a great article.
