Indulge me please, I am really excited to share the news that J&J Vintners is now located in the Walla Walla incubator facilities at the Airport location northeast of town. For the last two harvest seasons I have helped make wine at the same facility they were making their wine at. We had a couple of classes together as they finished their last few credits and I completed my first year. Last year I spent quite a bit of time in their small estate vineyard working through my viticultural practicum hours. The vineyard itself is Jeremy and Jody’s real-life experience planning and executing irrigation and vineyard planting during their first year in the WWCC EV program in 2008.
They recently moved into one of the Port of Walla Walla Wine Incubators; with a six-year contract for the space they hit the ground running with lots of wine to sell and an established presence in Walla Walla. We went to the Grand Opening, which was very well attended. You can order the wines online from their site, give them a try!
