New wave of signs point to Yakima Valley wineries
YAKIMA COUNTY -- Another phase of new signs for wineries in the county have gone up in Sunnyside.

The signs are supposed to make it easier for tourists to get to local wineries.

More than $100,000 has been spent on installing the signs.

Other signs have already been placed near Zillah and Grandview, with the hopes of drawing people and money to our local wineries.

"When they're done with those, then we start putting in the driveway or the destination signs for the wineries. Those should go up much faster and I'm still hopeful they will be set up by the end of this month," said David McFadden with the Yakima County Development Association.

Thirty wineries are involved in the project.

There's a 600-hour-a-year minimum operation requirement for a winery to be included.
