Bone-dry deserts, upriver winds from the Columbia River and long sunny days make the perfect conditions for growing wine grapes in the Horse Heaven Hills. Fine tannins and deep, concentrated fruit flavors are characteristics that put their region on the map - synonymous with some of the most acclaimed wines in the Northwest.
This tasting room is a bit off the beaten path, which makes it even more special (and less crowded). The staff are super friendly and informative. Definitely plan a visit to canoe ridge if you are wine tasting in walla walla! You can purchase wine by the glass and they have an extensive list of wines from several different vintages.
Available from March through October, Canoe Ridge Vineyard’s barrel room is transformed as far as the imagination allows. The site of concerts, decadent parties, wedding receptions, bridal showers and private wine club soirees since 1994, our dedicated events and catering team is ready to help you get started.
Cited on the National Register of Historic Places, the Canoe Ridge tasting room building originally served as the town’s streetcar and train facility in the early 1900s (Walla Walla Traction Co.). Although the winery has operated continuously since 1994, the tasting room underwent an extensive renovation befitting of its turn-of-the-century character; it reopened after a two-year closure in May 2012. Come enjoy a sip on the seasonal patio or cozy up inside at the charming tasting counter.
