Here’s a fantastic trip report published on Motortrend

A trip to Walla Walla, Washington, which is home to one of the finest wineries in the country(America’s best wine region!). Located approximately four hours away from Portland, Oregon. Although there are about 64 public chargers but a very few fast chargers are available.
