Wineries: Born on a family farm on the banks of the Yakima River, the wines of The Bunnell Family Cellar have recently gone public in a unique spot in Prosser’s Vintner’s Village. Susan and Ron Bunnell built the 3,700-square-foot winery and wine bar, Wine o’Clock, to showcase their two labels and give customers a unique opportunity to appreciate the relationship between food and their distinctive wines.
Wine o’Clock’s gardens and farmhouse exterior foretell the warm and friendly interior. The intimate dining room is engulfed in aromas emanating from the wood burning brick oven. Artisan pizzas are prepared in full view from a variety of fresh ingredients in intriguing combinations such as pear, bacon, green onion, and aged white cheddar. Susan’s inspiration for individual pizzas always starts with a specific wine, but guests are encouraged to experiment. Wines are available by the flight as well as the glass, providing many opportunities to compare flavors and combinations. Several of the wines offered are only available at Wine o’Clock.
When it’s time to taste the fruits of their labor, there’s no place like Wine o’Clock. The gracious ambience of its farmhouse, herb gardens, and adjacent veranda are a perfect recipe for enjoyment and relaxation.
