Big Changes are Afoot at Gilbert Cellars
If 2020 was the year that challenged us all to survive, 2021 is the year we are blossoming! We take this sentiment with us as we embark on the next big chapter of our little company. After over 12 years of living a double life between the urban downtown core of Yakima and our rural roots at the winery, we have decided to focus on building our brand from where we feel most at home. Set among the apple trees and vineyards, the winery is where we find our inspiration and excitement each day. We are delighted by the thought of being able to share the most authentic Gilbert experience with you daily.
This decision came not because of the hardships of 2020, but despite them. It’s because of you, our wine community, that we were able to thrive enough in 2020 to be able to make some truly seismic changes! For that reason, we can continue to bring you everything you love about Gilbert wine, in the very beautiful setting of the Hackett Ranch.
While the details of this transition are still falling into place, we are grateful for your patience and participation in the process.
As we close this chapter on a much-beloved space in our hearts we reflect on the integral role it played in building our company. We still believe downtown Yakima is the heart of our community and as such plan to support it in every way we can, through dining out, shopping small, and participating in community events. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to us. We cannot wait to bring our vision to life at the Hackett Ranch.
