Since moving to the island five years ago, my husband and I have belonged to the wine club. Of course, we can't always wait for our next delivery, so in the interim, we purchase more. We always have bottles of Palouse reds on hand. We've...More

Made our way to the winery as we were heading to the ferry terminal. A great winery with good wine and atmosphere. A must visit while visiting Vashon island.

Loved the cab franc and the Riesling. Great people! It's in a house right off the road so be prepared for creative parking. We bought two bottles and will be back!

The tasting room was fine and the service was ok. But frankly, the wine was blah. All the reds had no body and a quick, sour finish. After we taste we find out that the tasting fee is $15/person. They only wave the fee if...More

Sorry you didn't enjoy the wines, but different people have different tastes. The tasting fee is clearly list on our tasting notes that are on the table, and includes really nice cheese and crackers for clearing the palate between tastes.

Family operation producing 18+ wines, nearly all of which are single varietals. Great munchies also. The best features are the quality and pricing of the wines, all promoted and poured by the winemakers. Can't miss!

Palouse is one of those opportunities where you can sample some great wines and talk to the owners about their productions....if you are lucky enough to join them at a food and wine pairing, all the better!

We are glad you enjoyed coming out sampling the wines. The winery dinners are very fun and our guest chefs come up with some amazing pairings.

We first visited Palouse Winery for wine tasting about a year ago. It's a small operation, and you will usually meet the owners. We had a fun time and joined the wine club. I like full-bodied red wine and they excel at that. We also...More

I cannot say enough good things about Palouse. The wines are stunning, probably the best representation of Syrah you'll find in Washington State. George and Linda have done an incredible job creating a relaxed tasting atmosphere that is so welcoming to wine lovers of all...More

Did a tour of Vashon Island for my wife's birthday that included Palouse. Loved the wines! Signed up for their club and have found each quarterly delivery to be terrific. It's also a must stop when we have out of town guests over a weekend.
