Take a journey through time and wine in the Pacific Northwest on this wine tasting and nature tour through the Willamette Valley and Walla Walla wine regions. It all started 15,000 years ago at the close of the last ice age, when the Great Missoula Floods shaped the rolling hills that rise through southeast Washington and northeast Oregon’s Walla Walla Valley. These massive flows proceeded to carve the grandeur of the Columbia River Gorge, and then came to rest after forming the fertile Willamette Valley.

Experience wild landscapes, meet independent craftspeople, and taste amazing wines, eons in the making.
