• The Yakima Valley is a beautiful wine region that produces 60% of the best wines in Washington state. An area one should visit. It is truly a hidden gem. I worked at Owen Roe Winery. David O'Reilly is an amazing visionary. He has aligned himself with the likes of Mike Sauer, from the famous Red Willow Vineyards. A most beautiful wine is the Red Willow Chapel Block Syrah. A must try for Syrah lovers.
