Spring Barrel Wine Tasting Event in Yakima Valley Wine Country

Pre-Barrel Wine Tasting

Get a Sneak Peek Taste of New Vintages Right from the Barrel

Cancelled for 2020

Yakima Valley wine tasting from the barrel is a unique experience. Expect wines to taste different than you are used to out of the bottle. The vintages are brand new – giving tasters a sneak peek in to how they could mature. The weekend before the main Spring Barrel event, many wineries are open for pre-barrel. This is an opportunity for a bit slower pace and more education from the wine-maker as crowds are smaller. Check out the main Spring Barrel Weekend events.

Please check back often for more updated Pre-Barrel listings. More listings will be added as we get closer to the event date.
