Touring Red Willow Vineyard with growers Mike and Jonathan Sauer is a rare treat.  Learn first hand about one of the state’s oldest vineyards, the birthplace of Washington’s first Syrah, and a pioneer of Cabernet franc and Sangiovese. This tour offers an opportunity to see one of the most iconic vineyards in Washington State.

Yakima Valley’s Red Willow Vineyard

Your day will include a nostalgic tour with Mike Sauer in a covered wagon pulled by a vineyard tractor. The tour will include stops at a number of vineyard blocks, unique soil cutouts, and finish a top of the panoramic Chapel hill.

The discussion will include all things vineyard, but will focus on Red Willow Vineyard’s history of pioneering varietals in Washington State.

      Thanks Lisa – great suggestion. The vineyard itself is located near White Swan. We will be offering detailed directions upon check out. Access to the vineyard takes you through private property, to respect property owners we are providing directions individually. Hope that makes sense – we want to respect everyone involved.
