Yakima Wine Country

As Yakima Valley’s viticulture has matured over the last two decades and its winemaking prospered, many newer wineries have cropped up to quick acclaim. As the industry continues to grow, it is a must to come back and see which new wineries have joined this charming wine country. Today, the Yakima Valley boasts of more than 40 wineries and hundreds of vineyards within a 50-mile radius.

The best strategy to wine tasting is to meander down Interstate 82 with your Yakima Valley Visitors Guide in hand, or sign up for an unforgettable wine country tour. Pick half a dozen places or more to explore. You’ll often encounter winery family members in the tasting room delighted to recommend the best wine to enjoy with regional cuisine, talk about the winemaking process, or the traditional wisdom of barrel- or bottle-aging.
