Resort and Restaurant opens in Walla Walla
A new resort is about to open its doors in Walla Walla.
Eritage resort sits on 300 acres of wheat fields and vineyards. The resort and restaurant is something that pays tribute to everything Washington wine country has to offer.
“I'm excited for locals as well as visitors from around the world to come and visit the absolute beauty of Walla Walla,” said Terra Luthi, general manager of Eritage. “We're tucked in with wheat fields and vineyards, and we're just a little piece of heaven right here in Walla Walla.”
The resort offers ten guest rooms in the main building. Construction on ten more villas will start in July.
"We're getting ready for phase two so we will be bringing the villas to the other side so at the end of the day we'll be 20 rooms here at the property,” Luthi said.
From a staycation, to a business retreat, Luthi says she hopes the resort will be a relaxing space for people to get their creativity flowing.
“In some ways even though we're only seven to ten minutes outside of town we're a little bit off the grid. It's very private,” Luthi said. “It's very much about your group and such a relaxed and beautiful setting. I think it gives you that time to really brainstorm and really talk and come together.”
Eritage partnered with the visit Walla Walla board, the downtown foundation and the wine allience to make the resort something the whole community could enjoy.
“Those relationships are very important to us, and they've been huge supporters of us along the way.” Luthi said, “We're excited to officially open and have them a part of it.”
The resort features a restaurant open to the public for dinner seven days a week with a spread of farm fresh ingredients from across the state.
"From the restaurant stand point we are just very excited to be that farm to table and source from local farmers and ranchers and bringing as many of those things in as we can and having that partnerships,” Luthi said.
The resort is already open to members of the Eritage loyalty club called The Revelers. The club is free to join and gives you points for each dollar you spend.
