While Walla Walla's winemaking history dates back to the mid-1800s, only recently has this area become one of the country's premier wine destinations. For those who want an experience that incorporates the region's history, a stay at The Inn at Abeja is a must. This century-old farmstead in the foothills of the Blue Mountains boasts a collection of restored buildings, including the old Summer Kitchen, Chicken Coop and Bunk House. Each freestanding structure is now its own private accommodation, while the spacious, former horse-and-mule barn has been transformed into the winery facility, which specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon. A sense of solitude is ensured on this 35-acre estate, with its gardens and vineyards embraced by scenic farmland.
