Guided Wine Tasting Tour - Wahluke Slope AVA   NEW!

Join us on a guided wine tasting tour through the Wahluke Slope American Viticulture Area (AVA) which produces 15 percent of Washington’s wine grapes! This very warm South Slope growing above the Columbia River near Mattawa provides high degree growing days with cool nights. Home to more than 20 vineyards and at least 3 wine production facilities, the Wahluke Slope has the perfect environment for making big flavors, developing sugars, and keeping essential acids for a perfectly balanced wine.

This trip to the vineyards will include tours of the following beautiful facilities, where you meet some of the state's best viticulturists and taste some of the end product!

  • Milbrandt Vineyards
  • StoneTree Vineyards
  • Ginkgo Forest Winery's tasting room

    A box lunch and bottled water are included; bringing snacks is encouraged. There are two convenient pick up locations for both Yakima and Ellensburg residents. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to departure.
