We’ve said before wine tasting can be hard work. After two days of tasting starting in Seattle, heading to Woodinville, back to Seattle, then making our way southeast, we are finally in Walla Walla, Washington. I’m drinking my first actual full glass of wine, sitting on a big comfy bed at Vine & Roses Bed and Breakfast, compliments of the Walla Walla Bed & Breakfast Inns Association.
Learning from past experience, I merely swirled, sipped, swished and swallowed just enough wine to taste from the many offered to us on the WBC-or-Bust Road to Walla Walla Road Trip. Everyone along the way greeted us with plenty of hospitality. Beginning with former Texans who picked us up at the airport and offered us a place to stay after Southwest Airlines had us “Fly About the Country” for 10 hours on Tuesday night; and ending with a another couple of former Texans who graciously hosted us in their lovely Bed & Breakfast, as part of the WBC-or-Bust Tour. Tomorrow we head to the Wine Blogger Conference, where Joe is scheduled as one of the speakers in the very first break-out session. We’ll tell you all about our Road Trip in the coming days, with plenty of pictures. We’ll talk about many of the wines and food pairings, as well as about the winemakers and other folks we met along the way.
We’ll also give you the flavor of this year’s conference. But right now, all we want to do is sleep. It’s been a long and tasty trip over, and we hope to rest up tonight for the next three days’ events.
