Wineries plan events on Thanksgiving holiday

By the Herald staffNovember 15, 2012 

The Yakima Valley and Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail wineries' plan Thanksgiving in the Wine Country starting Nov. 23. Bring your own glass, as wineries won't be doing any dishwashing.

In the Yakima Valley, several wineries will hold a holiday open house with special tastings of wines, music, art displays and discounts on purchases Nov. 23-24. Several of the wineries will charge for tasting, usually refunded with a purchase.

To find a list of participating wineries, go to or call 509-965-5201.

In Zillah, eight of the wineries along the Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail will be offering a chance to sample new releases, discounts, appetizers and chocolates to nibble from Nov. 23-25.

There is no cost or ticket needed to attend this event, but some wineries do charge a tasting fee. A $10 Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail Passport offers up to 50 percent off wine and waives some tasting fees. Passports are sold at the wineries.

For a full list of participating wineries, go to or call 509-965-4521.
