02 Nov November Spotlight – Chandler Reach Vineyard
Chandler Reach Vineyards — an estate winery overlooking the Yakima River, the vineyard and Red Mountain in the distance. The winery’s architecture is a reflection of its Italian-style wines. The Tuscan villa houses the main tasting room and special events room. Relax on the patio and enjoy the cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, syrah or the sangiovese. All of these wines showcase the balance and ageability of Yakima Valley wines. Private tours of the vineyards and barrel cave are available by reservation. Large groups welcome with prior arrangements.
