“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

We visited many wineries in Benton and this was by far the friendliest! We were fortunate enough to meet the owner who'd invited us down to see the wine process. We watched the grapes being separated from the stems, listened to it fermenting in huge bins. Then learned about the oak barrels they are aged in and the process of cleaning the sediment in the barrels.
It was so educational and fun!

“Beautiful setting and wonderful wine. Include this in your winery itinerary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

We purchased a VIP wine tour for 8 to support a local charity. Came out here on a perfect June weekend, beautiful sunny day for a great view of the area. Chandler Reach Winery is a right off the highway near Benton City, the Tuscan building can be seen from the freeway. The estate is beautiful with flowers and a lovely patio area.

The manager, Shelby, provided the guided tour. We tasted the syrah right out of the barrel, looking forward to purchasing bottles when this vintage comes out.

The owner, Len Parris, was great. He came around in our private tasting room and told wonderful personal stories. The antipasti prepared by the kitchen was just delightful! Grilled summer vegetables, crackers and tapenade, several types of cheeses. It was a very enjoyable and special tour indeed.

“Great Wine, breath taking views from winery Tuscan style villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2008

Chandler Reach Winery is a quick trip down the highway from Prosser. The estate is beautiful and relaxing - it was the perfect ending to my day of Yakima Valley wine tasting. There is a nice patio and a sweeping view of the vineyard, river and Red Mountain. Wines were fabulous - The Chandler Reach Syrah was full of ripe blackberry and black cherry. I also tired the Monte Regalo - very smooth, balanced with black currant and cherry. The owner, Len Parris was great and I was able to taste the very elegant Parris Estate Reserve (2004?) - it was fantastic!!! Soft oak, rounded tannins, rich, but reserved fruit - it was lust at first sip!!! I missed the monthly Winery Special Italian DInner where a guest chef pairs the food with the wines - I am putting it on my calendar of things to do for 2009. Probably the prettiest winery of my tasting tour. Definitely worth an hour of wine exploration. Several other good wineries in the area as well, but Chandler Reach was really special. I'm coming back for barrel tasting.
