Spend Thanksgiving Weekend in Wine Country
What better way to make the most of Thanksgiving weekend than by starting a new tradition? Get ready for the rest of the holiday festivities with a road trip to Yakima Valley Wine Country for sipping and saving. Why visit this time of year? Crisp fall days with clear, blue skies are perfect for wine tasting in beautiful, cozy Yakima Valley tasting rooms. Wine country also has a slower pace this time of year and you’ll find the tasting rooms are a little quieter. The excitement and activity of crush has passed and winemakers are busy behind the scenes perfecting the next great vintage while the peace of fall fills the Valley.
