Like restaurants in the Washington State local wineries are working hard to survive during the COVID-19 pandemic. Barb Glover is the Executive Director of Wine Yakima Valley who says wine tasting continues but just like restaurants the tasting rooms are outside. In fact Glover says Treveri Cellars has added outdoor domes known as “The Bubbles at Treveri” to their tasting service.
