We stopped at Portteus on a 25 wine tour of the area over 4 days. We did not know anything about the winery but we had a wonderful experience. Their tasting room is a large warehouse area with a very long tasting bar. This may not be the quaint tasting experiences of other wineries in the area but Portteus has... More

My husband and I arrived at this winery a little angry because of our previous experience. We entered the winery to the sounds of clinking bottles (it was bottling day). Matt came out and welcomed us and the fun began! Excellent wine and beautiful art work for sale. Matt was very knowledgeable and super friendly! We will enjoy our wines... More

My friend and I were planning a trip to the Yakima area. Because she had never been to a winery I looked for a winery that would be opened the day we would be in Yakima. I found Portteus and we decided to go there. It's 22 miles from where we were staying. They are open 7 days a week... More

When you think about all the wineries you visit on a quest for the best in a region, you most likely will always remember a place that encompasses these two combinations: excellent wines served by an incredible host. We had such an experience when we visited Portteus. Matt, our incredible host with his extensive knowledge of the wine and the... More

We visited as part of a group of wine lovers on an annual tour. The owner, Paul, and his son, Matt, were absolutely the nicest people and they really take the time to help you explore the wines that they have. Their comments and anecdotes about each wine we sampled really helped educate us about wine in general and their... More

We have been visiting and buying wine here since the 1980s. Good product. Nice owner who now has sons in the business. Today we enjoyed and purchased petit verdict, red blends and petit sirah. We will be back.

This review is not about the wines themselves, but the vineyard and tasting room... The road leading to the vineyard is gravel, and if not for the signs, you would wonder if you are headed to the right place. The tasting room is inside a warehouse, with stacks of boxes on one side, and the tasting bar on the other.... More

Paul Portteus was one of the first to open a winery in the Yakima Valley. I have been visiting his winery for 23 years. Though Paul has a reputation as being a bit on the eclectic side, his wines are still awesome.A must stop on anyone's tour of Wineries. Many years ago he took us back to the cellar for... More

First of all, I will mention that while we enjoy wines, we are not experts. This is one of the wineries I had on my list to check out on our Zillah/Yakima Valley visit. I had researched ahead of time and found the founder's story interesting. I also liked the idea of checking out one of the earliest wineries in... More

We have always enjoyed going to Porteus. The wines are good and inexpensive. I would plan on getting some of these for every day drinkers....pizza wine.
