While in the Yakima Valley, we wanted to catch up with Barbara Glover who heads up Wine Yakima Valley. She had put together an amazing tour for many of us in the Wine Media for the conference held in Walla Walla in Oct 2018. The tour gave us an in depth look at this region and was the reason we decided we needed to return to learn more.
We had a couple of morning interviews and Barbara was kind enough to squeeze us in last minute. Now…where to meet? Barbara made a call and set us up to meet at Stems in Yakima.
Stems is a wine & gift shop, so we had a backdrop of shelves of bottles of Yakima Valley wines for our interview with Barbara.
Brad who runs this shop was generous in letting us use the space and we had great conversations on the area. We found a couple of bottles that we were not able to find elsewhere to take along with us.
If you are in Yakima, this is a great place to pick up a bottle and gain some valuable information from Brad on the area! It’s also a pretty great spot to pick up gifts for fellow wine lovers!
Stems does tastings with Washington wines and beyond so check their facebook page for events! https://www.facebook.com/stems.yakima
