Local wineries are hoping the public will take the family and friends to check out area wineries this Thanksgiving.

Barb Glover with Wine Yakima Valley says during the Thanksgiving In Wine Country event, wineries in the valley pair wines with holiday food. She says, “it’s also a great time to get some great discounts.”

Glover says Wine Yakima Valley has partnered with Northwest Harvest to help feed the hungry this holiday season. Purchase a Taste to Fight Hunger ticket at any participating winery and receive waived tastings fees, reserve & specialty tastings, and special discounts.

All profits from the sale of Taste to Fight Hunger tickets will be donated to Northwest Harvest.

The event showcases wines from more than 40 Yakima Valley wineries and for many, it is the last chance to taste before tasting rooms close for the season.
