Yakima Valley Vintners recently completed fermentation of the 2017 vintage wines. These wines will become available near the end of 2018 and early 2019. We are now in Winter quarter when the student winemakers are conducting blending trials on their 2017 white wines and 2016 red wines.

Yakima Valley Vintners produces between 300 and 500 cases per year. Our award winning wines were first released during the 2008 Yakima Valley Spring Barrel Tasting.  Produced by the students of the Vineyard & Winery Technology Program, these wines have now garnered more than 90 awards over the last nine vintages. Those initial wines have now become award winners and are all sold out! The good news is more award winners have followed the inaugural year and keep our tasting room fully stocked with reds and whites from the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages.
