03 Mar March Winery Spotlight: Lookout Point Winery
For decades sun-seekers have trekked to the Yakima Valley to experience sunshine, natural beauty, and wine. It’s been within the past several years that visitors have learned of the simple, eclectic community that is downtown Yakima. The downtown wine scene offers music and entertainment making Yakima an ideal base for exploring the region’s wine country with half-a-dozen hotels and restaurants within walking distance of the wineries.
Lookout Point Winery located in downtown Yakima is owned by George Petzinger and his wife, Ivone. The winery started in their home with the delivery of a five gallon carboy full of fermenting juice as a gift for helping pick grapes. The humorous journey of figuring out how to make wine from it turned into a long lasting fascination with every detail of the winemaking process. The journey has led the Petzinger’s to own and operate this small winery dedicated to producing high quality unique wines at a reasonable price.
The primary focus of Lookout Point Winery is malbec. A wine that has received high acclaim from vintage to vintage.
