' VanArnam Vineyards - About Us

About Us

Welcome to VanArnam Vineyards. We focus on making the highest quality wines. Our size allows us to be hands-on every step of the way from nurturing our vineyards, picking the grapes at harvest and through all the wine making in the winery. We are located in Zillah which is in the Yakima Valley of Washington - the leading wine region in Washington State. Our vineyards grow on a southern slope of perfect soils for premium wine grapes. The winery rests on the top of a hill overlooking the vineyard and the Yakima Valley with views of both Mt Adams and Mt Rainer. We think our grapes like the views as much as we do 😊.

Our Yakima Valley tasting room is open from mid February through Thanksgiving weekend.

Friday noon to 6pm
Saturday 10am to 6pm
Sunday 10am to 5pm

Monday - Thursday - we are onsite working in the winery and vineyard. With a short notice, we are happy to meet you in the tasting room for a more personal tasting experience. Just give us a quick call at 360-904-4800.

Guests love our patio for picnics…so bring something yummy to eat and enjoy a glass of our wine while you soak up the view.

Tasting room address is 1305 Gilbert Road Zillah, WA 98953.  Please see our contact page for a map and directions.

Great news for those or you that follow wine ratings and awards.  Recently our 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon earned first and second place awards in the annual SIP Northwest wine completion in Seattle – over 500 wineries submitted wines.  Our Melange received a 91 rating in Wine Spectator and all of our wines earned medals at both the American Wine Society Awards as well as the SanFrancisco Chronicle Wine Competition!
