Over 40 wineries partake in Red Wine and Chocolate Event
YAKIMA, Wash.- Yakima's first signature winery event of the year is now here.
40 wineries from all over the valley are participating in this year's Red Wine and Chocolate Event.
The 35 dollar pass includes free tastings at all 40 wineries with chocolates to pair with. This Yakima tradition has been going on for 25 years now, and winery experts say this event helps kick off Yakima’s tourism attractions.
"It's a huge tourism boost to the region in February, which is a little bit slower time for tourism. It's a great opportunity for the wineries to market themselves as a place to come and visit and be entertained," said Barbara Glover, Executive Director at Wine Yakima Valley.
The Red Wine and Chocolate event will be going on until President's Day.
