On March 20, 2014, Walla Walla Valley wineries will gather at the historic Gesa Power House Theatre in Walla Walla for a special program in honor of the 30th anniversary. Andy Perdue of Great Northwest Wine will lead a lively roundtable discussion featuring the Valley’s wine industry founders:

The Walla Walla AVA was first formally recognized on February 6, 1984 with four licensed wineries. Economic impact studies have shown that today, more than 100 Walla Walla Valley wineries generate more than $500 Million in annual revenue.
