Very nice winery, good setting. The server was pleasant enough, not sure he enjoyed his job though. Gave the standard wine talk, just not much of a conversationalist.

Tasting room is located in a former school, very nicely appointed now. Wines are quite good and gift shop items are of high quality. Don't pass this one by.

All we kept hearing in Walla Walla was great things of L'Ecole. Our visit was average, ok. Nothing to go crazy over.
