Wine Bloggers Coming to Walla Walla

Posted: Updated:

Walla Walla, Wash;-- The 3rd Annual Wine Bloggers Conference is coming up June 25th to 27th at the Marcus Whitman Hotel in Walla Walla.

More than 300 wine-loving bloggers will come to the area to taste wine from throughout the state. 

The event includes wine-blogging seminars, food and wine pairings and visits to local vineyards and wineries.

Ryan Pennington, the Communications Manager for the Washington Wine Commission, says this is the first time the event has been held outside of California, and is a huge benefit for local wineries. 

"This really is a terrific opportunity for the region and for our producers to gain exposure and raise awareness of the region and our products with this new segment of media."

Event organizers also arranged a pre-conference excursion to the Yakima Valley and a post-conference tour of Red Mountain, both of which sold out.
