I had a great time chatting with Denise and Steve from Trio Vintners in Walla Walla, WA. Their partner Tim Boushey couldn’t be there, but I hope to meet him next time I am in Walla Walla.
These guys have a great concept; reasonably priced single varietals in small lots. We tasted the ’06 Mourvedre and it knocked my socks off. We even poked a little fun at the iconic Gary V and Denise showed off an actual rock from the terroir that produced the grapes for this particular Mourvedre.
Next time you are out tasting in Walla Walla, be sure to make it out to Trio Vintners in the incubators at the back of the airport. Well worth the trip.
