You can savor up to ten of our delicious award-winning wines in our wine tasting room on Historic Front Street. We make true-to-varietal Washington wines. Our thoughtful staff can talk you through the flavors of these wines and perhaps even turn you on to something new.
Our Featured Tasting is $6 for five (1 oz) tastes and is refunded with a two bottle purchase. Wines are available by the glass, bottle, and case. We offer a 10% case discount, and have a wine club for even more savings.
If you want to spend more time enjoying our locally made wines, let us pour you a glass and serve you our gourmet cheese plate, featuring Tieton Farm & Creamery hand-made cheeses.

Visit the Winery
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 Winery is home to our family-owned winery, our barrel room–The Cave, and our lawn style live music venue–The Amphitheater. Located just west of Yakima, on The Hackett Ranch, the land was purchased from the Hackett family in 1920 by the Gilberts, who believe in the farmer’s lore that it is good luck to keep the original ranch name.
