As the Yakima Valley's viticulture has matured over the last three decades, our winemakers are some of the most respected in the Northwest. With over 120 wineries and five AVA's in just 70 miles, wine tasting in the Yakima Valley is a rewarding and unique experience.
The volcanic soil and long, hot days makes the Yakima Valley the ideal place to grow hops. We proudly produce over 75% of our nation's hops, which means there wouldn't be craft beer without our farmers! When you come to the Yakima Valley, you come to the source!
Because the Yakima Valley is the heart and soul of Washington State agriculture, our local restaurants and eateries are able to take full advantage of the abundance of farm fresh produce. Many of our restaurants and chefs utilize the fine wines and local produce in their menus.
