Their new tasting room is in Burlington Northern’s station complex near Gilbert Cellars, just south of the former Northern Pacific station in Yakima, which was constructed in 1910. Amtrak’s Empire Builder passenger train served the city until it was rerouted through Wenatchee on Oct. 27, 1981. BNSF Railway now operates the line through Yakima, although only for freight trains.
This location is Yakima’s birthplace. When Northern Pacific Railroad created its depot here in 1884, Yakima City (now Union Gap) used teams of horses to slowly pull and roll the entire town to this location. Throughout history, the Yakima Depot served as the valley’s hub for passenger and freight service under the ownership of various railroads. Passenger service ceased in 1971, and the depot went through periods of disrepair and renovation. It is now owned by Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railroad.
In the mean time, don’t hesitate to call their Tasting Room for more information: (509) 961-8370
