L'Ecole No 41 is a boutique winery situated just west of Walla Walla, in a place called Frenchtown, Washington. I was in Walla Walla on business, my colleague and I had some time on our hands, and my nephew had heard of L'Ecole all the way back in Columbus, Ohio. Knowing that we were in the general vicinity of L'Ecole, he texted me hourly, urging me to drop in and try their wines. And so, we did.
The L'Ecole No 42 logo depicts an early 20th century schoolhouse, that at sometime in the early 1980's became the main headquarters and tasting rooms for the L'Ecole No 41 winery. Though L'Ecole No 41 is best known for their reds, tonight I'm tasting another famous wine, their 2001 Chenin Blanc, also known as their "Walla Voila".
