Yellow Hawk Cellar has opened a downtown tasting room in Walla Walla, Washington. The tasting room is located at 343 South 2nd Avenue and is open Friday through Monday 11am to 5:30pm. Winemaker Tim Sampson had previously opened his home south of downtown for event weekends.

Yellow Hawk focuses on wine styles and varietals few have explored in Washington, including Sangiovese and Barbera. Their wines are always interesting and very well priced. To see a review of recent Yellow Hawk releases, see my Walla Walla Spring Release 2008 report.
