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 region, easily allowed the wines to sell themselves....and they did.
If you have a short amount of time to tour through the amazing wineries of Yakima Valley, I would say Portteus absolutely should NOT be missed. The caliber of their
extensive wine list truly represents the best of the region.
The Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve are all above and beyond anything we tasted while on our quest for exceptional in Yakima Valley, yet another favorite, Rouge 66 represents a great everyday wine.
Beyond the tasting room experience, calls made to the winery since our visit have all been handled with both prompt return calls with utmost courtesy.
As a previous business owner, the type of customer respect & service we have received from this establishment gives them a gold star in our book. Portteus Vineyards & Winery should be a model for industry standards.
