10 Picture Perfect Washington Wineries You Need To Visit
Spring is unofficially “wine season” in Washington, when events like the Yakima Valley’s Spring Barrel Tasting and Walla Walla’s Spring Release Weekend reminds us that Washington wine is truly amazing and we should all be drinking it. But what is also amazing is the beauty of the wineries themselves – many of them make gorgeous destinations for their architecture and landscaping, with delicious vino being an added bonus.
You’ll find visually stunning wineries all around the state, and these 10 happen to be especially beautiful.
1. Terra Blanca Winery & Estate Vineyard, 34715 N Demoss Rd., Benton City

Talk about the ultimate relaxing getaway. Cave B Estate Winery & Resort sells their award-winning private label wine, which you can sip before heading to your luxurious guest room or yurt.
3. Amavi Cellars, 3796 Peppers Bridge Rd., Walla Walla
Amavi Cellars also has a beautiful tasting room in Woodinville, so you have two chances to taste their top notch vino. The Walla Walla winery is just a 10 minute drive from downtown, but you'll feel like you're on a rural vacation.

It really doesn't get much better than this. Sipping wine on the patio of this charming vineyard on one of Washington's most beautiful islands makes for an idyllic afternoon.
9. Col Solare Winery, Benton City,

10. Abeja, 2014 Mill Creek Rd., Walla Walla
Best known for their beautiful inn, the Abeja winery property is perfectly picturesque. Due to their limited production, they offer tastings only to their list members and overnight guests - but it's well worth booking a stay here.
