America's Best Wine Region 2021

Walla Walla Valley: America’s Best Wine Region

What makes Walla Walla one of America’s best wine regions? Well for starters, Walla Walla Valley was named America’s Best Wine Region in the USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for three years in a row (2020-2022). Walla Walla was also named as a finalist in the competition for five years; how’s that for a start?!

Long Shadows Vintners - America's Best Tasting Room

In addition to the Walla Walla Valley’s placements in the Best Wine Region category, Long Shadows Vintners also secured the top spot on the podium as the Best Wine Tasting Room in 2022. Couple these accolades with a vibrant food and art scene, and you have all the ingredients to list Walla Walla as one of America’s best wine regions.

Although wine is certainly a selling point for Walla Walla, the small town of Southeastern Washington is known for more than its world-class grapes and award-winning wineries. From its charming and historic downtown to its neighborly community, creative culinary scene, and abundance of arts, culture, and recreation, Walla Walla stands out as a must-visit destination.
