Winery Incubator

It is official - the Port of Walla Walla, with a $1 million state grant, will start plans to build a winery incubator to assist new and upcoming wineries in the valley. The "village of wineries" will be four to five small buildings located at the airport area. Construction will start this winter with a goal for the first tenants to be moved in by June - just in time for the 2006 crush. The winery tenants will be on a six-year plan and after that period is up, they will move (and hopefully move forward) to provide room for other new wineries.

Like The Walla Walla Institute for Enology and Viticulture, this is another progressive and important asset to our valley inspired by Dr. Myles Anderson, who is also Director of the Institute, as well as co-owner of Walla Walla Vintners.
