Shawn, I want to give a shout out to Karen LaBonte with Trio Vintners and Jan Roskelly with Tero Estates… I am attending the Wine Bloggers Conference in August and am taking 3 days to spend in Walla Walla. I have never met either of these awesome ladies, but have become friends with them on Facebook and Karen has even sent me wine to review. We are going to spend time with both of them during our stay and am so excited that they are so gracious to welcome me and my 2 friends with open arms. Love them to pieces.
