A Wine Country Holiday: Book Your Celebration at a Winery

A Wine Country Holiday: Book Your Celebration at a Winery

Looking for a place to celebrate the season with family, friends or co-workers?  Our Yakima Valley wineries and breweries are the perfect place for your holiday get-together!  Choose from a warm intimate setting for a dozen guests, or get a larger venue for over 200.  Nothing makes your holiday party a success like sitting amongst the wine barrels, surrounded by great views, beautiful courtyards and expansive lawns. And to make your event even more special, many wineries offer special discounts, free tastings, tours or catering. 

Here’s a few examples of what some of our local wineries can offer for your Holiday gathering: 

Desert Wind Winery offers full-service banquet and meeting facilities for up to 150 guests. They also have an in-house event coordinator available to help guests choose the options they need to personalize their special event. They have four approved caterers that their guests can choose from, each offering unique menu options.

Kestrel Vintners offers a room for 50 with special discounts on wine, hayrides, vineyard tours, winery tours and wine education seminars. Beer is available too.

Milbrandt Vineyard's Barrel Room can seat 30 people. For a more casual Holiday gathering you can be seated in the fireplace area, barrel room and front and back patios for up to 85 people or casual indoor seating for 50. Enjoy a 15% case discount on wine. Be sure to discuss any special requests you might have. 

Tanjuli Winery can accommodate 95 people, plus they offer a great discount based on number of people and volume of wine served. They can also suggest wine pairings or wine maker dinners to a minimum group of 30 people. There are wine tastings and vineyard tours with UC Davis trained Winemaker Tom Campbell, who will share his wealth of wine making and grape growing experience.  Groups of 20 or more can enjoy this unique opportunity to learn about wine making, grape growing, food and wine pairing.

Wilridge & Naches Heights Winery can accommodate parties up to 50 at their winery location, and if you need a larger venue, they will also serve their wines at Hopfen Haus at Hop Nation Brewery, which can accommodate 200. Located in Downtown Yakima, this is one of the most unique event spaces in town.

Snipes Mountain Brewery & Restaurant has three distinct spaces to choose from when planning your Holiday celebration. The Summit Room accommodates up to 49 people and overlooks the Main Dining Room.  The Sunset Room has a private bar that can fit 113 comfortably, and the Patio can accommodate 125 and is equipped with heat lamps.  They also have three unique catering and buffet options, designed to work with any budget.
