YAKIMA VALLEY WINES
Our wineries are located in the vineyards and orchards of the Rattlesnake Hills, just 4 miles southeast of Yakima off Interstate 82. The Rattlesnake Hills form the northern border of the Central Yakima Valley. Travel the scenic back roads to see all 15 of our member wineries.
The Rattlesnake Hills is often referred to as the 'green' tour of the Yakima Valley. Situated in the low rolling hills, the Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail takes you through some of the best orchard and vineyard land in the area. Each winery offers a unique setting in which to enjoy the fruit of the vine. You may start your tour anywhere from Exit 44 on the west end to Exit 63.on the east including all exits in between.
The tasting rooms vary from Northwest modern architecture to traditional European with everything in between. All tasting rooms are open to the public without reservations during their published hours. Some have a small fee for tasting, but most remain free.
Remember, no rattlesnakes, just great wines.
For those people who are interested in buying grapes or purchasing vineyard land, please visit this section of the Rattlesnake Hills Web Site. The Rattlesnake Hills offer some unique advantages over other growing areas in the Yakima Valley or all of Eastern Washington.
