Tucker Estate Vineyards date back to the 1930's in the Yakima Valley. Grandfather Melvin grew premium wine grapes at that time, passing on the tradition next to Dean and Rose Tucker. Now the grapes and wines are in the hands of Randy and Debbie Tucker. To quote Bob Woehler, "The slogan of Tucker Cellars ....is family and quality."
When the Winery first opened, in 1981, Dean was bottling two varieties - Riesling and Chenin Blanc. Today the Family of Tucker wines has grown to 15.
The first grapes in the Yakima Valley were brought in from cuttings purchased at the Hudson Bay Company in 1869 by French Winemaker Schanno, from Alsace. Early on, it was known that the Yakima Valley was suited for growing great vinifera varieties, but it took the expertise of Dr. Walter Clore to make the wine industry of the Sate of Washington what it is today. His vision, guidance and insight were vital to the Tucker Family and its wines. Yakima Valley was the first Appellation in the State, with recognition in 1983, and now comprises an area covering 600,000 acres.
Tucker Cellars hosts 6 events annually, combining wine with wine education, oh, and did we mention that it is fun?
