The Bell At l'Ecole No. 41

Our one winery visit on our trip to Walla Walla last weekend was to l'Ecole No.41. l'ecole means school in French and the winery is in an area known as Frenchtown. Visitors to the winery are invited to ring this bell, formerly used when the winery was actually the Lowden school. One of the first wineries in the area, the winery was started by descendants of the Baker family. The same Baker family who started the state's oldest bank.
