Yakima Valley wineries and tasting rooms hold Spring Barrel Weekend starting April 22, and the Walter J. Clore Center in Prosser will be getting in on the action.
The event provides the first taste of still unfinished wines from the latest harvests in the region. Dozens of wineries up and down the valley are participating. A Premier Pass waives tasting fees at some of the wineries, and costs $30 when bought in advance at bit.ly/SpringBarrel. The pass costs $35 when bought at the door of participating wineries.
The Clore center will be open throughout the weekend, but its special event is Unwined, an after-hours event starting at 6 p.m. April 23. There will be food from AC BBQ catering and music from regional band the Knutzen Brothers.
Tickets are $10 and can be bought at bit.ly/Unwined2016 or at the door.

Organizers with Mystic Party Solutions are billing the event as a way to draw people to Pasco and learn about the community. It’s also a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties.
Participants will also have the opportunity to vote for the best tacos in Pasco with a ballot bundled with the the ticket booklets. The winner will be announced at the Cinco de Mayo festival May 7 in Pasco, which is organized by the Downtown Pasco Development Authority.
Ticket books can be bought at bit.ly/PascoTacoCrawl. A fee of about $2 is charged on each purchase. Tickets can be picked up at Vinny’s Bakery, 1107 W. Lewis St., on April 22.
