YAKIMA WINE TOURS - ABOUT US


Our owners shared a glass of Merlot at a Washington winery. Savoring the rich flavors and scenic view, they thought how others might enjoy the Valley's wineries without having to drive themselves.
An idea was started to form a wine tour company, and specialize in taking guests on custom private wine tours of the region.
We wanted our tours to be led by guides that were educated in wine and really knew the area. We put together a custom package where guests are taken to their choice of the wineries in Yakima and Prosser, such as Bonair, Wineglass Cellars, Cultura, Silver Lake Winery, Two Mountains, and more.

The tour includes transportation, exclusive cellar tours, along with driver, mini-van and gas so you don't have to worry about extra charges through the day.


If you are a wine enthusiast or just out for a fun day, we'd love to show you our area and introduce you to the outstanding wines of the Yakima APA."

Cheers!
