14 Hands Winery from Seattle Washington

Get to know 14 Hands Winery

14 Hands StoryAs a busy wife and mother, alone time is something I'm sorely lacking. It seems like no matter how hard I try, I just can't get the peace and quiet I deserve. Not that I'm complaining, not really anyways, because I love my children and husband but even just a few minutes of peace would be better than nothing at all. Recently I've found myself making excuses to go to the grocery store just so I can have an hour to myself without the clamoring of children or the constant questions from my husband. When I was a single gal with no husband and no children, I took silence for granted. Now, I crave the peace and quiet more than anything.

While I don't get much quiet time during daylight hours, I do manage to slip in some quiet time for at least an hour before bedtime..sometimes, if I'm not too tired. It's during this time that I'll finish laundry that needs sorting, do the dishes, clean up the latest messes on the floor where the kids have played or sometimes I have nothing to do and will pour myself a glass of wine to enjoy while I read a chapter or two of my current book. The book is optional for my quiet time but sometimes it feels like the wine is not. I'm sure some of my fellow mama's can certainly sympathize with that!

14 Hands Tasting Room14 Hands Winery

At 14 Hands Winery they know how important a good glass of wine is. Inspired by the wild horses found in Seattle, Washington, 14 Hands is a wine borne from the hills. 14 Hands draws their inspiration from a time when mustangs were able to run free in the hills of eastern Washington State. These magnificent creatures, measuring 14 hands high, would travel down the hills each day to drink from the Colombian river and graze along its riverbank. Known for their strength and tenacity, mustangs became known for their endurance and spirit. The unique and beautiful landscape of these hills are what gave the mustangs their strength and spirit; the sand and gravel soil also require the grapevines to be strong and determined, to grow the grapes needed for 14 Hands wines.

      If you don;t like wine – have a beer! Yakima Valley also grows the most hops in the US so how about a beer? There are tons of fun breweries close by. And ciders too!

    We do like visiting wineries.
