We’re just finishing up a two day tour of the Yakima Valley for three Dutch journalists and they’re having a blast! After arriving yesterday they had a quick tour of The Tasting Room Yakima at Wildridge Vineyard. Then each went on different excursions including whitewater rafting on the Tieton River with Osprey Rafting, a massage treatment at Ummelina Spa and a tour of the Central Washington Agricultural Museum in Union Gap.
To cap off their busy day the journalists were treated to dinner at Greystone Restaurant in Yakima with wine tasting and an overview of the region’s wine industry provided by Anders Zwartjes of Gilbert Cellars. Today they tour the murals in Toppenish before moving on south.
The trip was coordinated by Washington State Tourism and the Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau. In addition to visiting the Valley the entourage will visit Seattle, Mt. Rainier, the Columbia Gorge and Mt. St Helens.
