Great Year for Yakima Wine & More Potential in 2014

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.--2013 was a great year for Yakima wine.

A spokesperson for Wine Yakima Valley said their main goal was to spread the word about the local industry and they succeeded. More than 150 articles were published focusing on the region's quality of wine, and the organization created a widespread social media campaign.

Yakima Valley Wine said this isn't just an exciting time for people in the wine industry but also for everyone in the valley.

"We can go out and live in an area that has such great abundance in wine and other agricultural products," said Barbara Glover, the Executive Director for Wine Yakima Valley. "So it's a pride point I think for the people that live and work in this area."

Glover said they'll continue to  build good relations with others in the industry and work together on future programs.
