We continue with our visit to Vintage Walla Walla, this time getting down to the real nitty gritty – soil, that is. We get a first-hand history lesson and a look at the different soil types in Walla Walla Valley with Dr. Kevin Pogue, a Professor of Geology at Whitman College.
Much of the soil in the Walla Walla Valley is a blown-in almost talcum-like mixture called loess. This, mixed with granite, basalt, and cobbles from the Blue Mountains make for a unique terroir.
