PRESS RELEASE

Yakima, Wash., — August 26, 2013— As harvest begins in the Yakima Valley, so does the anticipation of harvest, the most spectacular time of year in the region.

Experience harvest with the experts during the Annual Catch the Crush weekend, October 12-13. Nearly 40 wineries invite guests to tour vineyards, enjoy harvest and crush activities, stomp in barrels, and wine and dine all weekend long. Wine Yakima Valley offers the most economical way to experience Catch the Crush with the Premier Pass for just $30.

Premier Pass holders have the opportunity to indulge in exclusive events while also receiving discounts and waived fees on tastings, experiences and wine purchases all weekend long. Wine enthusiasts can soak up knowledge, partake in harvest or relax with winemaker dinners and crush parties.

From downtown Yakima tasting rooms to rural Zillah, laid-back Prosser and the rich soil of the Red Mountain AVA, Premier Pass holders can stop at nearly 40 wineries along the valley, conveniently accessed along Interstate 82.
