"We are honored to accept this award and to celebrate with the entire Walla Walla region as one of the 'Top 10 wine destinations,'" said Kyle Mussman, owner of the Marcus Whitman Hotel which houses The Marc Restaurant and The Vineyard Lounge. "From the coastal climates of the West, to the desert climates of the East, Washington State is unmatched in varietals, styles, and quality."
