We have done wine country excursions through WA state, always ending at the Marcus Whitman in Walla Walla. Their wine dinners are simply the best - we have attended about 8 so far and have gotten to know the staff, who are always friendly and hospitable. The wine dinner weekends are always lavish affairs and feature the top wineries in the area. An added treat is you get to talk to the winemakers and visit their facilities. The breakfasts are also great. And what makes it such a good location is that you are very close to the historic downtown district and as such in easy walking distance to at least a dozen tasting rooms, wine bars and bistros! Lastly, if you are a history or architecture buff, the Marcus has been restored to its original splendor and it is nice just to sit in the large lobby with a cup of coffee and a book by the fire.
