WBC is Returning to Walla Walla

The 11th annual Wine Bloggers Conference (WBC) is coming to Walla Walla, where more than 300 wine writers and social media influencers will gather to share their passion for wine, and experience Washington wine country.

This is the second time WBC is being held in Walla Walla – we attended the 2010 conference, which also marked the first time this major event was held outside of California wine country. Now, eight years later, it’s back on Oct. 4-7 — four days of wine tasting, winery tours, discovery sessions, educational sessions, live blogging, a dinner banquet, and pre- and post-conference excursions. It’s also so much fun to see old friends and make new ones who share a common interest – fine wine!
