From the outset, Rick determined that quality would take precedence over quantity. Consequently, Woodward Canyon has remained small. Woodward Canyon is located in Lowden in the Walla Walla Valley appellation. The tasting room is a restored 1870's farmhouse.
Woodward Canyon is a founding member of the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance and VINEA, the Walla Walla Valley Winegrowers' Sustainable Trust.
Hours: Woodward Canyon is open daily, from 10-5, except for major holidays. Our last tasting of the day starts at 4:30 PM. There is a $5 tasting fee for our Classic Tasting which is refundable with wine purchase, as well as a Reserve Tasting with a $15 nonrefundable fee.
Woodward Canyon also offers private sit-down tastings in the new "Reserve House" with current and limited reserve wines. These are offered most Thursdays and Fridays, and reservations may be made by calling (509) 525-4129. There is a $25 tasting fee per person, $5 refundable towards wine purchase. For more information call or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visitors are welcome to picnic in the tasting room garden.
