We were looking forward to stopping at Col Solare due to its partnership with Antinori wines in Florence, Italy. My husband spent a year at Gonzaga-in-Florence and his classes were all in the Palazzo Antinori. The first problem was finding how to enter. There were 3 gates open, none of which looked more imposing than the other, so we took... More

We belong to a few wine clubs in Red Mountain and Walla Walla and many in Napa. Love wine. Cellar. Entertain. And, simply indulge. We came across Col Solare at an event. Met the winemaker - loved him & loved the wines. Went to the winery in June for the first time & joined the wine club. The property is... More

The sign at the bottom of the tasting room stairs says "By appointment only". That is not actually correct, the winery is open to the public with regular hours. The winery used to be by appointment only, they just haven't removed the legacy sign yet. The wine is served sit down restaurant style, it's more Napa'ish that way. Why they... More

We dropped in at 11am and were warmly greeted. The tasting was side by side 08 and 09. Both these wines were wonderful. We were indeed fortunate to taste 3 other wines the were also outstanding. Thanks to the staff for a glorious Easter Sunday morning experience.

On our anniversary trip to the area, Col Solare was highly recommended. But because they have restricted openings (by appointment only), we missed out. Or maybe THEY missed out. :(

There is a tour once a week, Sundays at 1pm, and costs $20. We joined this one-hour tour, which begins with an overview of the grounds, and the layout of the plants. It's followed by a walk down to the fields, and then tour of the machines and underground storage. The grounds is lovely, and so is the building. You... More

Your is by appointment only. We spent 2 hours. Nice tour and friendly staff. Met the wine maker. They served a nice glass of 08 and 09 for us. Not just a splash to taste. Wine tour fee refunded if you buy, ( and we did!).

Col Solare's tasting room is located high on Red Mountain, overlooking numerous vineyards below, including their own. If it's not too hot, sit on the outdoor patio at the high tables to enjoy the most expansive view and observe their unique vineyard layout design. Their tasting room staff is very pleasant and helpful and the wine is a "must taste"... More

While the wines are good, the establishment has lost touch with reality... they do not belong in the Yakima Valley which I feel is a warm friendly community. I have never been to a winery as "snobby" as Col Solare. We were charged $16.00 for 2 - two ounce pours of the reds they were offering. When we asked if... More

This is a winery that I keep going back to. It is classy and has a great view. When it first opened it was by appointment only which usually keeps me away but I went there once by appointment and then they opened up on some schedued open to the public time. This is a winery that is a collaberation... More
