Karen Bach, the tasting room manager here in Ellensburg, is working her magic and expanding Gard to include different wines, new menu items, and opening up an adjacent room to handle more customers. Karen is keeping with the mission of Gard Vintners which is to capture and bottle unique characteristics of the land that they farm, with 100% estate-grown sustainability in the heart of Washington’s Royal Slope.
