  • Where do I start with Kana Winery? They were our first stop on this past weekend's Wine Yakima Valley Spring Barrel Tasting. We bought our $35 PREMIER PASSES there. It's an in-town tasting room and, not knowing anything about the winery, I wasn't sure what to expect. There were two ladies behind the bar pouring tastes and the owner was roaming around and shmoozing with tasters. So, we bellied up to the bar and made our way through the wine tasting menu and...found Nirvana. It has been DECADES since my lovely wife and I tasted so many wines with flavor and richness and depth of character that fairly leaped out of the glass. These days you're lucky if you find even one varietal you like at a tasting room. The problem with most corporate and custom crush wines and just about every wine you find on the supermarket shelves is that most of them are insipid and lacking flavor. Sure, they're cleanly made wines, but mass market, no character and for many of them, barely any flavor. The ladies serving up the tastes were friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. One of the requirements of the tastings was BYOG, as in glass. Oops! This being our first time attending this even we were so eager to hit the tasting rooms we forgot to bring our own wine glasses. Not to worry at Kana. They were happy to provide "loaners" as every wine tasting room I've ever been in (and the two I worked in) have provided. To the wines, dear friends! Just so you know, the owner and winemaker have a Grateful Dead motif running through the wine names. They reds were all great but for me, there were two standouts. The first was the 2010 Workingman's Red, one of the best red blends I've ever tasted. And do you know how rare it is to not only taste but find a red wine with a vintage before 2015? This wine has stood the test of time. The second was the 2010 Scarlet Fire, their reserve red. The complexity and depth of the flavors blew us away. We finished the tasting with their slightly sweet 2013 Johannisberg Riesling, named Katie Mae. Now, 2013 is getting a bit old for a white wine, especially one on the sweet. Not the Katie Mae, She was still a youthful nymph dancing away at a Dead concert way back when. Totally delicious. Kana Winery, as I like to say, is the real stuff. There wasn't a clunker in the bunch. If you're looking for delicious wines of full blown flavor, depth, and character, please stop by. The tasting room staff will make you feel at home. And the wines will make you feel Greatful that you Dead, I mean, did.
  • Great wines and friendly staff. We love the music on the weekends.
  • I loved the Tempranillo and the Dark Star, but overall the wine selection isn't vast and they have no food, so the experience was subpar. One of the customers recommended Carousel, a French restaurant which is actually a gem in the valley. That'll be my next review!
  • Enjoyed it. Bought a couple bottles of wine to take home.
  • Love their wines. Ben does an awesome job making the wines. Friendly tasting room staff. If you like white wines you with like them. If you're a red wine lover they have a number to choose from.
