Various Husky wineries in Walla Walla
Tickets include tastings at eight Husky-owned and operated wineries. A shuttle will provide rides to locations central to the wineries throughout the day, though some walking will be necessary. Explore any of the wineries at your leisure.
For those who opt to purchase cases of wine at any of the designated wineries, free pick-up and delivery of your cases of wine to the Courtyard Marriott in Walla Walla that afternoon will be available.
Wine Tour Transportation: Shuttles will run from three convenient stops during the event. Some wineries might require a five to 10 minute walk from the nearest stop, so weather-appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes are highly recommended.
We encourage responsible wine touring and recommend that you utilize the provided shuttle service, make arrangements with a local cab company or that you have a designated driver.
