The Hackett Ranch

Yakima’s Destination Winery

Hackett Ranch

This destination winery is the perfect setting for a wine tasting (by appointment), wedding or concert. At the ranch, you can breathe in the view of vineyards, orchards, and lavender, all located just 20 minutes west of downtown Yakima. Gilbert Cellars at The Hackett Ranch is home to our family owned winery, our barrel room–The Cave, and our lawn style live music venue–The Amphitheater. Named for original owners and cattle ranchers, The Hackett Family, the ranch was purchased in 1920 by The Gilbert family, who believe in the farmer’s lore that it is good luck to keep the original ranch name. 

When the setting sun casts pink shadows on the Ahtanum Ridge, our geological wonder to the south, there is no place more magical than The Hackett Ranch. Host your wedding or special event at our destination winery!
