Will Red Wine & Chocolate Be Canceled This Year Due To Weather?
Can you believe it's been a year already and we are back to that wonderful time of the year with Red, Wine & Chocolate!
Since the weather has been a bit nasty and is expected to get a bit worse over the next few days, the question lingers, will Red, Wine & Chocolate still go on? It is best to call the winery you wish to visit before you go to make sure. I called Gilbert Cellars and Kana Winery and they both said as long as the weather permits, their tasting rooms will be open. It is advisable to call beforehand if you are planning to visit any wineries in Zillah, due to the extremely hazardous wintry mix of snow on the roads.
If the event is still a-go in the upper Yakima Valley area this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, then here are a few wineries (and a brewery) you can check out!
