The Ultimate Walla Walla Buy-In!
May 15-17, 2015
Fly Away for 35 Couples

What happens when you commandeer a Horizon flight to Walla Walla, reserve a wing at the newest hotel in downtown, and hit the skies with 70 Washington Wine lovers? You get the biggest auction lot buy-in in Auction of Washington Wines history!

35 couples will get a chance to experience Walla Walla like never before. Head to Sea-Tac airport and meet up in the specially created Auction of Washington Wines pre-flight lounge with Washington Wines. Then board a chartered Horizon flight all our own for a quick flight to Walla Walla. Say goodbye to little bags of peanuts, and hello to gourmet in-flight snacks and sky-high entertainment. 

When we land in Walla Walla, motor coaches will be waiting, and the group will head to a reception in downtown Walla Walla with Chef Andrae Bopp of Andrae's Kitchen. Sample wines from local wineries before heading off to the brand new Courtyard by Marriott for your first night's stay - your bags will be waiting for you in your room.


The next day will be filled with vineyard tours, winery experiences and a lunch at Va Piano Vineyards with Chef Jake Crenshaw. The whole group will dine at Va Piano's new two-acre outdoor event site with a garden-to-table lunch. After a day of exploring Walla Walla, you'll top off the weekend with the ultimate BBQ at Waterbrook Winery. Dinner and wines will be prepared and poured by Mark McNeilly, Ross Mickle and Jean Francois Pellet! Friends and neighboring wineries are invited to each "block party" and you will see the camaraderie of the Walla Walla wine community first hand!

On Sunday, explore downtown at your leisure before we head to the airport district to sample wines from this popular area. Before we leave for home there will be a lunch at Dunham Cellars featuring more Washington Wines and guest Walla Walla chef!

$2500 per couple which includes:
Round-trip flight from Seattle to Walla Walla including baggage fees
Two nights' accommodations at the brand new Courtyard by Marriott, Walla Walla
All ground transportation
Complete concierge, red carpet service from gate to gate
All meals, tastings and one-of-a-kind experiences

Thank you Horizon Airlines, The Courtyard by Marriott and all of the participating Walla Walla wineries and chefs for welcoming us into their community!

Value: An "it's all planned for you" ultimate VIP Walla Walla wine experience!

 

THE 27TH ANNUAL AUCTION OF WASHINGTON WINES was a huge success!  In 2014, with the help of the generous wine community, we were able to raise $1,800,000 to support uncompensated care at Seattle Children's Hospital and fund viticulture and enology research at WSU. 

We are grateful to Washington winemakers, our dedicated sponsors and generous guests for coming together to support these important causes. Thank you for the support in building healthier and more vital Washington.

We look forward to seeing you next year on August 13 - 15 - join us for one day or all three! 

In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook for photos, updates, and highlights from the events and the Washington state wine community.
