Local Legends

One of the winery’s most unique attributes incorporates the agricultural history of the area into the building itself: a beautiful display of reclaimed barnwood collected from farms across eastern Washington. 

The stories of these barns and the families who built them are told throughout the property, most notable with an installation in the 14 Hands tasting room in Prosser. These displays serve as a tribute to the region’s history and heritage.
