Walla Walla has PRIDE! 

The Walla Walla Valley has a vibrant, expanding LGBTQ+ community; along with some pretty amazing LGBTQ-owned businesses! Show your Pride in June (and all year long!) by supporting these wineries, shops, and restaurants on your next trip to Walla Walla!

Bergevin Lane Vineyards: Founding partner and winemaker Annette Bergevin has created a stunning tasting room in downtown Walla Walla. Sip on refreshing sangria here in the summertime and enjoy delicious small bites from TMACS (also LGBTQ-owned)! They’re celebrating Pride with a special release of their Linen Sauvignon Blanc, available for purchase in their tasting room for a steal of a deal at just $22.

August Forest Cellars: This small production winery is the passion project of CJ Augustine (pictured above) and his business partner, Forest Rogers-Phillips. Both originally from the east coast; CJ and Forest both moved to Walla Walla to pursue winemaking and instantly became friends in the ​​Walla Walla Community College’s Enology and Viticulture Program.  “Our goal is that August Forest plays a role in de-mystifying wine and in the process drives diverse, new voices to the conversation.” 

While there is no tasting room at this time, you can shop for August Forest wines locally at The Thief Fine Wine & Beer, or purchase bottles and sign up for their wine club on their website

TruthTeller Winery: Rob Wohr is a partner at TruthTeller Winery, located in the heart of downtown Walla Walla. Say hello to him when you stop in for a glass or a tasting while shopping, sipping, and exploring your way through all our downtown has to offer! TruthTeller Winery rejects the idea that wine is only for the select few and believes wine should be an accessible pleasure to all (and we agree).

Soi 71: Soi 71 is the sensational Thai food truck owned and operated by the talented David Raymond-Kwan Jai Cook. His love for cooking comes from his mother, who raised him in Eastern Washington after moving to the States from Bangkok when David was just four years old. Her insanely delicious northern-Thai-style dishes that David serves are packed with flavor and authenticity.

We highly recommend ordering in advance; this local hot-spot is always busy.

XOBC Cellars: XOBC Cellars was founded in 2019 by multi-Grammy award-winning artist Brandi Carlile, her wife Catherine, and their friends, Jeri and Amy Andrews. A combination of their love for music, wine, and wanting to make a difference all come together in this winery; where the proceeds are donated to Brandi’s Looking Out Foundation. The Looking Out Foundation amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice. 

XOBC Cellars does not currently have a tasting room, but you can purchase their Rhône-inspired wines and join their wine club on their website

Bacon & Eggs: Bacon & Eggs is the place to be for some of the best breakfast in town, and a killer menu of breakfast cocktails, too! The popular downtown eatery is owned by partners Michelle Giannunzio and Michelle Adams and every dish is made fresh from scratch, and you can taste the love in every bite. There’s (almost always) a line when they open, but we think you’ll agree it’s worth the wait.
