As you travel south on Interstate 82 toward Zillah, you must stop at Masset Winery. The tasting room is nestled in a 1905 farmhouse surrounded by orchards of pears, cherries and apples. While visiting the farmhouse you will also want to try the cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and reserve blends. Owner/winemaker Greg Masset also runs the kitchen at the Yakima Country Club and
utilizes his craft of both cooking and winemaking to produce exquisite food-friendly wines.
