The Winery

Video: 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 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. 

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