Tucannon Cellars Google Virtual Tour

Tucannon Cellars

I created a Google Virtual Tour for Tucannon Cellars and it’s live! They recently renovated the Sugar Pine Barn Event Center, added a stream and upgraded the landscaping. I love sitting on the deck behind the tasting room, glass of wine in hand. It has a large tree growing through the center, providing great shade. But don’t just take my word for it, check out the tour. Or better yet, visit in person to experience it first hand!

Purple Star Winery – “See Inside”

Just did a Google Inside View for the Purple Star Winery tasting room in Benton City, WA. Great folks and excellent wine. A little off the beaten path, but well worth it, especially if you’re interested in seeing what a working winery really looks like. Left click and drag to move around the room and click on any of the arrows to move to the next spot. Come on in and look around! They also have a couple of other labels, Native Sun Wines and Muret-Gaston Wines.

The Emerald of Siam and Kiona Cellars embrace Google Business View


The Emerald of Siam was voted best nightlife venue in the Tri Cities for 2014, and I can personally vouch for the good times to be had there… Always top notch bands in many different genres and a dinner show most nights.


Kiona Winery is one of the oldest on Red Mountain with a stunning tasting room and incredible views. I also really like the wine, my current favorite being the Cyclops II red blend

Spectacular View from Tapteil Winery on Red Mountain

I had so much fun doing this shoot for Larry and Jane Pearson up at Tapteil. If you’ve never been to their tasting room up on Red Mountain, maybe this will give you some incentive to go. Absolutely astounding view of the Yakima Valley with the Horse Heaven Hills in the back ground… And the wine is really good. I’m especially fond of their Syrah and the GSM (soldout)


Hamilton Cellars goes live on Red Mountain

Hamilton Cellars is the latest addition to the growing family of local businesses to take advantage of Google Business View. They’re a small family run winery up on Red Mountain, 100% solar-powered with an electric car charging station and excellent wine. My current favorite is the 2010 Red Mountain Malbec.
