As the air crisps and the leaves begin to turn, Autumn inches closer. And with that is one of the most wonderful times to visit Walla Walla, Washington: Fall Release Weekend!
During the first weekend of November each year (November 5-7, 2021), wineries showcase their newest releases and host a myriad of events. While this year may look a little different than the large-scale hurrahs of the past, wineries are honing in on a more intimate tasting experience.
Many of the wines unveiled during Fall Release are exclusively available at the tasting rooms and wineries. Opportunities to meet with winemakers and learn about what made this vintage unique is another draw and appeals to wine connoisseurs and casual imbibers alike. Each Walla Walla Wine District– Downtown, Westside, Airport, East Side, Southside, and The Rocks in Milton-Freewater — will offer a different ambiance. However, Fall Release proves to be an action-packed weekend throughout the entire town.
If you’re looking to plan your getaway to Walla Walla, Washington as a respite for all things wine, Fall Release Weekend is a terrific time to do it.
