During the "Off-Season", the Wine Bar at Wilridge Vineyard becomes one of the most unique off-the-beaten-path wine tasting destinations in Yakima's Wine Country. And, one of the best kept secrets of the romantically inclined, and wine lovers who choose to celebrate the smells and the flavors of the season by sipping their favorite red or white wine, warming up with a cup of spiced wine or our estate brandy while sitting on the edge of the vineyard it came from. Outdoor heaters and blankets are available on the porch and the fire pit is lit daily at dusk.

Steve's Vineyard Farmhouse AirBNB Review:
"FANTASTIC! Thank you so much to the Wilridge Winery staff for a relaxing and enjoyable visit. I stayed for 2 nights and couldn’t ask for a better experience. I instantly felt right at home. The staff was amazing and so accommodating and friendly. I awoke early every morning to take strolls on the winery grounds. I had the grounds and the beautiful view of the canyons and valleys all to myself. A very surreal and relaxing environment. The sounds of the rooster in morning gave me a sense of peace and tranquility that I was looking for. The rooms were spotless and clean. The old-style farmhouse feel gave me a sense of going back in time. You couldn’t help but feel that you were transported to a turn of the century winery in Tuscany, Italy. If you are a wine connoisseur, you’ll love the selection of wine in the tasting room. I was partial to the Pinot Grigio. Thank you to Laurie for introducing me to the distillery where they make a very fine Brandy. I HIGHLY recommend a visit to this wonderful place. I plan to return next year for an extended visit."
