As you probably know, one of the most popular social media networks over the last few years has been Instagram. We at Wine Yakima Valley have jumped on the bandwagon and taken up the medium ourselves (and we quite enjoy it, actually).
Here are three great Yakima Valley wineries who are active on Instagram too. Give them a follow and use the hashtag #yakimawine the next time you drink a Yakima wine!
1. Cultura Winery (@culturawine): Cultura has been on Instagram for less than two years and already has 262 followers. They’ve posted 390 photos, they’re also obviously great cooks because the photos of the meals they prepare and pair with their wine will make you want to eat your smartphone.
Warning: Do not browse while hungry!
2. Two Mountain (@TMW): The dogs and cats are the stars of the show here, as well as the vines of course. One look at this account and you can tell the Rawn brothers are farmers, salt of the earth, and animal lovers. Their Instagram account is only 22 weeks old, but it already has 34 followers and great photos.
3. Gilbert Cellars (@gilbertcellars): The folks from Gilbert have been on Instagram for over a year and have 226 followers. Their Instagram feed is a little slice of life: good food, great wine and smiling people.
A good Instagram feed is a reflection of the culture of a community or a place and you can definitely get the feel for this awesome winery and tasting room via their Instagram feed.
The next time you’re on Instagram, give these wineries a follow. And follow us as well at @wineyakimavalley. Happy posting!
P.S. for Wine Yakima Valley members: All members are invited to learn more about Instagram and social media at a special Social Media Workshop April 3, courtesy of Wine Yakima Valley. Come learn more about this easy and fun way to connect with the people who love your wine!
