Walla Walla Wineries : Sapolil Cellars
Named after a Native American integral to building the county’s
first railroad in the 1800’s, Sapolil provides a nice nod to the
history of the Pacific Northwest Region. Their downtown tasting
room, which doubles as a restaurant and music venue, is
dark and moody, mahogany tables warmed by cushy throw pillows
and dim lighting. Though Sapolil doesn’t specialize in tastings,
live music every Friday and Saturday night and the occasional
weekday cinema night make for a worthy visit. The wines
themselves are pleasing and well structured. I could see the
2008 Dwelley Reserve with an Angus burger, or the fruity 2008
Tre Amici with a buttery pasta dish. Go for date night and know
you will find quality wines to complement your dinner order.
