10 Dec Aarons Wine Chronicles Top Ten Recommended Wineries of 2019!
2019 Top Ten Wineries (by area – SE Washington)
Welcome to Aaronswinechronicles first annual Top Ten recommended wineries in Southeast Washington! For simplicity, I’ve partitioned the Southeast region of Washington into 3 specific areas or zones. The first area covers tasting rooms in the Yakima Valley, Prosser and Paterson while the second covers the Tri-Cities and Red Mountain. Finally, the third zone covers Walla Walla. As my wine escapades continue across the state, I hope to be including other state regions as well. This region of Southeast Washington state includes hundreds of wineries to experience! Since I’ve personally visited more than 90% of the tasting rooms in this combined area, I feel confident about these recommendations. Here I present 3 lists, one for each specific area just described.
These wineries were identified by Aaronswinechronicles.com based upon personal experiences and multiple direct visits/tastings over the years. Some of the more important attributes considered in my recommendations include:
- Wine Quality and Consistency (with a focus on red wines)
- Tasting room staff – Knowledge, Enthusiasm and Customer Engagement
- Diversity of Wine Offerings
- Ambiance and more.
Please note: Recommended wineries identified here are NOT listed in any particular order of priority. From my perspective, if a tasting room made the list, it is highly recommended by Aaronswinechronicles.com. I hope you visit and enjoy these fabulous Washington State wine venues! Cheers!
