09 Apr April Spotlight – Knight Hill Winery
The theme of the Zillah wine tour is agricultural history and natural beauty. Knight Hill Winery fits the theme. The tasting room is converted from a horse barn surrounded by vineyards, alfalfa and fruit trees with a 360-degree panoramic view. Owners Anne and Terry Harrison offer an eclectic variety of red and whites along with their warm hospitality. During your visit be sure to sample the verdelho, a Portuguese white wine just introduced to the Yakima Valley. This is a picnic-friendly winery, with tables set up in a courtyard adjacent to the tasting room.
