YAKIMA VALLEY WINES
Welcome to the Yakima Valley and the Rattlesnake Hills AVA.
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 of our
wineries. Our wineries are not in warehouse districts, industrial ports,
or old airports.
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. The wineries lie north of Interstate 82. You may start your tour anywhere from Exit 40 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. Many
times you will be talking to the owner behind the bar. Tasting
room hours vary and some are only open by appointment. Some have a
small fee for tasting.

Remember, no rattlesnakes, just great wines.
