Apartments Near Wineries in Ellensburg, WA
Oenophiles rejoice! If you’re looking for apartments near wineries in Ellensburg, WA, you’re in luck. University Park & Place student housing apartments are ideally situated to easily experience one of the various local options. Taking a break from studying and enjoying a glass of vino may be just what you need. Here are three top spots to get you started.
Stop by Ellensburg Canyon Winery for a sampling of various wines against the backdrop of stunning canyon mountains. The grapes come in from nearby Cox Canyon Vineyards, the oldest operating commercial vineyard in the area. The winery is open year-round (though it’s safer to call ahead in winter months, in case weather conditions cause it to be inaccessible) for tastings of the various vintages, which include cabernet franc, Malbec, and Riesling, among others. Join the wine club and you’ll receive a total of 17 bottles shipped to you throughout the year, plus complimentary tastings at the winery for you and up to four guests.

Overlooking Kittitas Valley and the Stuart Mountain Range, Thrall & Dodge Winery sits in a region known as the “fruit basket of Kittitas Valley.” And it draws from that fruity nature when it crafts its selection of wines. The winery is an experience in and of itself, but just 10 minutes down the street is where the real treat is: the tasting room. There, you can enjoy a flight of wines, wine by the glass, and even a selection of food to pair with your libations. Play it safe and book a night at the charming guest suite above the tasting room and everyone in your party can enjoy tasting as much wine as you desire.

At Gård Vintners, sustainability is the name of the game. The family-run business turns out around 6,000 cases of wine each year, which is distributed via their wine club, tasting room, and at a selection of retailers across the country. There are three different tasting rooms to take advantage of, one of which is in Ellensburg, but if you’re away from home, you can get your fix in either Walla Walla or Woodinville. If you want bottles to take home, your best bet is to sign up for one of the three wine clubs available, which will save you from 15–25 percent.

Lucky for you, living at apartments near wineries in Ellensburg, WA, means taking advantage of the opportunity to sip some of the finest local creations just requires a quick drive. Cheers!
