Prosser, Washington is making room for another tasting room as it was announced recently that 14 Hands Vineyards (part of Ste. Michelle Wine Estates) will open a facility by Fall 2013. According to the winery, 14 Hands in the number one selling wine in Washington and Oregon (at $10-12 a bottle we can see why!).
The new tasting room will feature a tasting bar, lounge and a barrel room for the winery’s Reserve wine tastings (a tier introduced last year by the winery). The interior and exterior of the tasting room will reflect its location at the base of the Horse Heaven Hills appellation with barn wood and earth tones throughout. The location of the new tasting room fits the 14 Hands perfectly as the winery draws it’s name from wild horses that used to roam this area of Eastern Washington.
“Since its initial introduction in 2005, we have watched 14 Hands evolve into a Washington powerhouse,” said Ste. Michelle Wine Estates CEO Ted Baseler. “We are excited to respond to consumer demand by creating a unique 14 Hands winery destination.
