Shared Club Experience
August 11-20, 2023
For the duration of the Shared Club Experience event, all Diamondback members are honored members of the Downtown Wine District Walla Walla Wine Club. This event is available exclusively to club members of participating Downtown Wine District wineries. The Shared Club Experience begins on August 11 and continues through August 20th. During this time, at every participating winery, you will be treated to 15% off bottle purchases or 20% off case purchases (naturally, you still enjoy any of your usual additional benefits in our tasting room). When you arrive for the Club Experience, come to our tasting room first to receive a wristband and winery guide. These items will identify you as a Downtown Wine District Walla Walla club member entitled to all the special benefits. If you are a member of more than one participating winery club, please feel free to start at whichever of those locations you prefer.
We are so happy to offer you this opportunity to experience the Downtown Wine District of Walla Walla with all the special benefits you deserve. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
Fall Release Weekend
November 3-5, 2023
Fall is a beautiful time of year to enjoy the Valley. During Fall Release Weekend visitors can be among the first to enjoy and acquire newly released wines, many of which can only be found by visiting the wineries and tasting rooms themselves. It’s a fantastic opportunity to talk directly with Kristie about the new vintage, and gain insight into her creative winemaking process.
Holiday Barrel Weekend
December 1-3, 2023
Holiday Barrel Weekend is three days filled with food, wine, art, music and most importantly, the opportunity to sample future releases straight from the wine barrel. Wineries, lodging establishments and restaurants revel in the holiday spirit with festive décor, holiday promotions and gift packages.
Please join us as we launch into the holiday season. And don’t forget to keep the festivities going by taking home some Lodmell Cellars wines to share with your loved ones over the holiday season.
