Thanksgiving in Wine Country is a chance to taste Washington wine and help local hungry families at the same time.
The Wine Yakima Valley event is held about 40 wineries on Red Mountain and in the Yakima Valley from Nov. 28-30. The free event offers the opportunity to kick back, relax and maybe pick up a few Christmas gifts along the way.
Some wineries do charge tasting fees, the price of which varies. Many wineries are donating tasting fee proceeds from the event to Northwest Harvest, which provides food to about 300 food banks in the state. Wineries also will be collecting money and canned food for Northwest Harvest during the three-day event.
