We visited the day before Thanksgiving, 2021. It was our second visit as a small group (three), having previously visited at the same time of year in 2018. During the 2018 visit I bought a case of marvelous Cabernet Sauvignon. During this year's visit, I bought a variety of bottles, mostly reds, and we enjoyed a couple of them with our Thanksgiving feast. During both visits we enjoyed Paul's hospitality. He was friendly and engaging. He knows his wines and his vines and he gladly answers questions and responds to comments. Of all of the wineries in the Zillah area that I have visited, his is the only one where the wine tasting is accompanied by tiny tapas. We thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits and are likely to visit again.

This vineyard and winery is one of a kind. If you’re expecting to find a cellar with the atmosphere like those in the big wine country, you will be disappointed but, if you’re open to experiencing good wine with fresh air, animals and good conversation with the grower this is the place for you. Paul, shares his knowledge and passion for organic farming, wine making, and good living while we sit under the shade of cherry trees, looking at farm animals and the beautiful landscapes. It’s a great place to relax, enjoy a bottle or two and appreciate the good life, even if it’s just for a few hours.

Paul is great. He loves, cares for and drinks his own wine. Tastings include a lil smear to compliment each of the wines. I keep going back to buy more Rose Paradiso and always find another one I love. This is a natural relaxed setting and very down to earth people who love the planet and making wine. Last visit, Paul gave me some beautiful greens so I could make a salad to enjoy with my wine purchase. We love his dog pack too. Last year we met the baby turkeys and chick's wondering the yard. It's always interesting and I always buy wine. Can't say that about every winery I visit!!

The minute we pulled into the parking lot we had a bad feeling about the place. There was junk on the lawn, flower beds were overgrown, and the entry was like walking into a home. Upon entry there was produce on the counter, lots of clutter, and the wine maker was preparing a test tube tasting for a group. He made some small talk about being right with us, but after a quick look around we knew this wasn’t for us so we left. We’ve been to plenty of wineries, big and small, but none that were this dirty and off putting.

Owner/winemaker has a routine of "Sip, Sip, taste, and Sip (finish the wine)". He serves a little plate with tiny - tiny tidbits that he believes - no he "knows" compliment his wines. He has a monologue of how his wine and his tastes go together. He seems more content to hear himself talk than to engage in conversation about his wine. When we arrived there was a sign "Organic Farm" and whether that belief seemed to lend to an overall "run-down" and ill kept place. Almost did not go in tasting room because of goose poop on the walk way and flower beds overgrown with weeds. Does not indicate the highest quality wine. Would not recommend to others expecting a wine tasting with quality wines.

We stopped off here on a whim and could spell bacon as we headed toward the tasting room, he said he makes BLTs, and I can tell you I wanted one but they were not quite ready. He did pair all 8-9 wines with tiny bits of food. (very tiny, but enough to understand the compliment) Very knowledgable, no pesticides, and we learned a lot, enjoyed the rose and several others. I respect the commitment to growing and selling to the consumer. Paul has his tasting room in his home, he is friendly and chatty, this was an experience we really enjoyed!

This is the most unassuming operation in the county. Cluttered yard full of animals and Paul, who has a schtick that is more funny if you are inebriated. I kinda was but it was nevertheless painful to cue in laughter. Micro-micro pours coupled with micro micro food dots did not allow the added inebriation I needed. The wine was so-so but we bought some anyway because Paul was on a streak of selling, otherwise your are straddled with a $10 tasting fee. You can find much better but you cannot find more unique.

The place is not inviting - this is someone's very lived in home. Paul is a wine master, treating the land beautifully and making a lovely product. Among the hand lettered signs to leave your wineglasses in the car, the chicken bombs on the sidewalk, and the cat asleep in the box by the door, you will find finely crafted wines. Don't miss out.

First time to this winery with a big group of friends. It was open past 4:30 which was the closing time of most of the other winery's in that area. The outside of the tasting room needs cleaned up - like bad! The owner was unique, talkative and informative. His blue cheese dip recipe is very good. I enjoyed the tasting experience itself but the interior also left much to be desired. I appreciate that they donate to the Yakima Humane Society a portion of their proceeds. Baby Barn Owl Red was my favorite.

Place is a dump, the couple are obviously hoarding and there was junk everywhere. The women does a trick with a syringe and that is a forewarning of the very small pour they give you for a tasting!!! They give a small piece of various foods with each tasting which was good but ruined by the micro size and the fact the plates are separated by pieces of plumbers pipe.

Not in a anyway cute just hillbilly cheap.

Wines were actually quite good but spoiled by the tasting room which is a dump, filthy and full of garbage.

Do yourself a favor and with all the nice wineries in the area give this dump a miss!!!!
