10 Sep Gilbert Cellars Celebrates Fall
Gilbert Cellars tasting room is housed in one of Yakima’s first buildings. Built in 1899, the Lund Building is the cornerstone of Yakima’s historic district. The tasting room offers a casual setting where modern meets rustic.
Winemaker Justin Neufeld (top right) crafts seven different varietals into ten amazing wines. From Mourvedre to Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet, the wines are balanced and well-made. Enjoy live music every first Friday interspersed with art openings in the downstairs Cellar Gallery. The tasting menu reflects an innovative spin on the Valley’s rich culinary heritage: salmon mousse on baguettes, seasonal soups and house-made tapenade.
