Tour includes the historic area of Browne's Addition where many of the mansions built in the late 1800’s have been restored to their original splendor. We will enjoy lunch at the Historic Roberts Mansion in their Secret Garden, and tour the mansion.
Along the way, a stop is scheduled at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture for a tour of the Campbell House and Museum. The house was built in 1898 for mining magnate, Amasa Campbell and designed by architect, Kirtland Cutter. The museum has three permanent collections; Regional History, American Indian Collection and Fine Arts. The featured exhibit will be “Lost Egypt - Ancient Secrets, Modern Science”, featuring Egyptian artifacts.
The afternoon “wine-ds” down with a wine tasting at Nodland Cellars, located in the historic Chronicle Building. At Nodlands, wine is a liquid art, beautiful to the eyes, pleasant to the nose; it delights the senses as it enters mouth. The red wines are made only from the grape varieties traditionally blended for centuries in Bordeaux.
The final stop is Patit Creek Cellars, where their wines are made with estate grown grapes from the famed Walla Walla region. They produce an excellent selection of whites and reds.
Since 1999, Patit Creek Cellars have been hand-crafting elegant wines worthy of their European heritage, using only the finest grapes from select vines grown in the rich glacial soils of Washington State.
