Travel Channel says winery a top place to stay, learn

By , Columbian News Editor

Walla Walla — Abeja Winery has made the Travel Channel’s latest list as a grape getaway.

The Walla Walla wine destination was listed by the Scripps Networks Interactive channel among “10 Wineries Where You Can Stay and Learn.”

“Whether you’re an aspiring vintner or would just like to learn a little more about how the magic gets in the bottle, here are grapes-to-glass wineries where you can stay, tour and toast with your host,” began the piece tweeted late last week.

Abeja, at 2014 Mill Creek Road in Walla Walla, operates on 35 acres of farmland. The piece references its conversion of farm buildings into seven private, “well-appointed farm-chic guesthouses.”

“Guests may tour the three vineyards that grow primarily viognier and syrah grapes, and learn about Abeja’s pruning and growing techniques,” Steve Larese wrote.

Wineries on the list were all domestic. The next-nearest highlighted was Youngberg Hill in McMinnville, Ore. Others were in California, New Mexico, North Carolina and Indiana.
