Yakima, WA (PRWEB) February 14, 2008
VisitYakima.com invites wine lovers to come celebrate Yakima wine again or for the first time with its update of "Celebrating the Red Wines of Yakima Valley." This section of VisitYakima.com features new information about the award-winning, handcrafted wines of local vintners. Future wine tasting events featured in the new website section include Yakima Valley's upcoming Red Wine & Chocolate weekend. The weekend of February 14-18 will feature over 50 Yakima Valley wineries and their one-of-a-kind wares. VisitYakima.com also conveniently makes available a complete list of Yakima wineries featuring their top two reds.
Winery hopping in the Yakima Valley is an unforgettable journey of delightful discovery for those seeking the good life and great wines. This sun-soaked Washington wine country region shares the same latitude as the great wine-producing regions of France. At the height of the growing season, rolling hills feature magnificent vineyards with trellises heavily laden with rich grape varietals.
The February Red Wine & Chocolate weekend will afford participants the rare opportunity to sample premium red wines with confections carefully selected to complement and enhance their experience of certain varietals, blends and vintages. These events are popular with visitors and area residents alike. For example, this past November saw 45 Yakima Valley wineries throw their doors open for oenophiles to enjoy some of the finest wines the area has to offer paired with carefully selected culinary delights.
VisitYakima.com has all the information you need to make this or any other wine tasting weekend unforgettable with extraordinary wine country tours, lodging and amenities.
