Yakima Valley Tourism receives grant for program allowing passengers to fly out with wine

YAKIMA, Wash.--Yakima Valley Tourism is getting grant money to help market local wine being flown out by Yakima Air Terminal passengers.

The Port of Seattle has given tourism leaders $7,100 as part of it's second annual grant program.

The campaign focuses on the ability for passengers to transport a free case of local wine when they fly out of the Yakima Air Terminal.

Tourism leaders say this will bolster that feature through their Alaska Airlines partnership.

"You can check a case of wine for free if you're an Alaska Airlines mileage member, so it's been a wonderful program for us," said tourism marketing manager Jared Yoakum.

"We have thousands of cases of wine checked every single year so this'll be a nice way for us to continue to advertise that program," he added.

This year the Port of Seattle is awarding $150,000 in grants to 18 groups across the state.
