What a wonderful facility staffed with attentive people who really care about your experience. This winery is a refreshing, beautiful oasis in the high desert. We got to learn about the winemaking process, actually got to try wine straight out a barrel to learn more about French vs American oak, toasting qualities, other details of great wine-making. Fabulous experience!

... to avoid the crowds, and to find the gems off the beaten path. Columbia Crest Winery is a spectacular facility from a visual appeal aspect. We were traveling from the Oregon coast toward home in Idaho, and decided to travel north on 221 toward Richland and the Bookwalter winery. Columbia Crest was on the way so we stopped -... More

I really enjoy cc merlots so decided to visit the winery. It is a beautiful french chateau type of building and just gorgeous inside and out. Wine tasting was free. Love that! At it was fun to try wines you can only buy at the winery or online. They also have a cute boutique shop with some good chocolates, rubs,... More

We visited Columbia Crest specifically because it is our go-to wine. It is a distance (well worth it) from Prosser but we found the drive across wide open spaces to be relaxing. The winery is extraordinarily beautiful and next time we will bring a picnic lunch so we can enjoy the ambiance longer. The self-guided tour is short but sweet,... More

Columbia Crest has been a reliable source for good, reasonably priced wines for years. Their tasting provided an opportunity to check out other wines that we haven't seen widely distributed. Several were very, very good. It was definitely worth the side-trip down from Prosser.

Just a beautiful property with very nice picnic area and pond. We love to come and pick some nice wine and maybe some chocolates. Also some wine for later. The staff is always pleasant and friendly.

We really enjoyed our short stop at this winery. Though we had the kids with us and skipped the wine tasting the stop was a good break from the road trip and gave a basic overview of how wine is made which was interesting for the kids. The facilities were beautiful and the real estate was amazing. Worth a visit!
