Tasting Room Etiquette - Taste Responsibly!

Groups of 10 or more – it is always a good idea to call ahead and let the winery know if you are tasting with a group of 10 or more. Pre-planning will ensure your experience is first class and the wineries have enough staff to accommodate your group.

Some tasting rooms in Yakima do charge a small fee. Please contact each winery directly for more information.

While visiting Yakima Valley wine country visit one of our wineries for a winery or vineyard tour. Tours are conducted on Sunday mornings at both Bonair Winery and Paradisos del Sol Winery & Vineyard. Note that tours must be scheduled in advance of your trip. To schedule your tour and for information on prices and available times please call or email the winery you are interested in directly.

Bonair Winery & Vineyard Tours

Vineyard tours are available by appointment. A vineyard tour is just that, a tour of some of the more important vineyards in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA guided by a knowledgeable grape grower from the AVA. Depending on your guide, you will see several vineyards up close and learn about pruning, training, irrigation, and grape growing in general. You will learn about the Rattlesnake Hills AVA, water rights, and the Missoula Floods. You must wear real shoes that are foxtail resistant. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours. $20 per person and a maximum of 4 persons.

Winery tours are available by appointment. On the Yakima winery tour you will see how wine is made from the crusher to the finished bottle. Visit the barrel room and sample wine from the barrel. See the bottling line and storage tanks. You will learn about how the grapes are received, crushed, pressed, fermented, aged, and bottled.  Tours last approximately one hour and cost $10 per adult or $50 for a group tour. No charge for children.

Yakima Valley Fruit and Produce Stands

The Yakima Valley is known as the “fruit bowl” of the United States and summer means delicious fresh fruits and vegetables you can’t get anywhere else. To get the freshest produce available we recommended visiting local fruit and produce stands. Right now you’ll find wonderful Bing, Rainier and Chelan cherries. They are plump and juicy and bursting with flavor. Apricots are also at their peak right now. Some of the new varieties of Apricots are unbelievably sweet and juicy – not your grandma’s apricot!! You’ll also be able to find strawberries and blueberries right now. The strawberries you find in Washington have a higher sugar content and no bitter white core like you sometimes find in grocery store berries.

On the produce side English and snow peas are at their peak in July and wonderful! All types of greens are coming off too including different varieties of lettuce, spinach and kale.

You can’t go wrong with Yakima Valley produce!

Visit some of our local fruit and produce stands and taste the difference:
