Canoe Ridge Vineyard
The building that houses the Canoe Ridge tasting room originally served as the town's streetcar and train facility. In its heyday in the early 1900s, the train system regularly traversed 26-miles between Walla Walla and Milton-Freewater. The system first shuttled townspeople but by mid-century it was carrying agricultural freight. In 1989, the same year Canoe Ridge planted grapes on its estate vineyard in the Columbia Valley, the lovingly restored Engine House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although the tasting room portion of the winery was closed under previous ownership in 2010, Precept Wine is delighted to reopen the tasting room of this historic brick charmer.
