America’s Best Road Trips
Washington: Walla Walla Wine Country
Seattle to Walla Walla: about 300 miles
Why go: Some of Washington State’s best wines are produced from vineyards scattered among wheat fields. Gramercy Cellars bottles Syrahs by master sommelier Greg Harrington, who left a restaurant career in New York City for Walla Walla.
Where to stay: The Inn at Abeja consists of five cottages on a turn-of-the-century farmstead (doubles from $215).
What to eat along the way: Artisan goat and sheep milk cheeses are sold at Monteillet Fromagerie in Dayton; in Walla Walla, Saffron Mediterranean Kitchen makes terrific paella
