Day 42: Cabernet Cab

Coming to Walla Walla for a little wine tasting? Try a Cab-the Cabernet Cab-that is . With so many wineries and vineyards to explore, why not leave the driving to an expert? Lori Fischer, owner/operator of the European style Fischer House, is also a Washington State Certified Chauffer and Licensed limo Driver. Lori offers five hour wine tours daily. You can build your own tour, or, let her create one for you. A typical five hour wine tour wil expose you to four to six wineries.

Lori's tour offers both a personal and educational experience. It is not unusual for her to introduce you directly to the winemaker. He might be in the tasting room ouring his winesand talking about why he started the winery, or, perhaps he is explaining the conducive geological features of the area and how it empowers the grape. Or better yet, he may be trying a new blend and invite you to the barrel room for your opinion. Just be up for "whatever."

And for the serious wine connoisseur who is looking for a great tale to share with friends, Lori has direct access to a number of "Invitation Only" wineries. Let Lori know if this is of interest, and she will get you into a select group of private wineries. This is quite an undertaking-but you can count on Lori to get 'er done! You will not be disappointed.

In addition to the top notch tour, expect beautiful scenery that includes open vistas along the route, a many of the wineries are small operations that choose to produce quality wines over quantity. As such they are often in hard to find places. But no worries-the Cabernet Cab will get you there!

The BASE RATE for 1-4 adults is $250 + tax & amp; gratuity.
$60 for each additional person  + tax & amp; gratuity.
Each tour includes a complimentary cheese tray, water, & amp; chocolates.
A full lunch is an additional $10 per person and includes a sandwich, cheese & crackers, olives, cookies, chips, and chocolates.
