Local Wineries

A list of local wineries - some are within walking distance of my home.
Updated 31 March 2018

The warm days and cool nights of the Columbia Valley provide the perfect climate for growing world-class wine grapes. Our local wineries are crafting award-winning wines from these grapes. Yes, we are spoiled. Come visit so we can share with you. Whether you are looking for a boutique winery or some of the largest family-owned wineries in Washington, you will find it here.

This is the up and coming wine region in the Columbia Valley. A bit more rural but full of passion. Escape to wine country and enjoy the farm and country views. The wines are wonderful too.

    Red Mountain AVA

    Frichette Winery.
    The Red Mountain AVA is an American Viticultural Area that includes the land surrounding Red Mountain in Benton County, Washington. It is part of the Yakima Valley AVA, which in turn is part of the larger Columbia Valley AVA. Located between Benton City and Richland, the Red Mountain AVA is one of the smallest in the state at only 4,040 acres in area. The name is derived from the color of the cheatgrass in spring.

    Known primarily for extraordinary terroir that produces red varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, the reputation of the wines from Red Mountain have brought the spotlight of worldwide acclaim to our region. The vineyards in this appellation have produced grapes for some of the most sought after wines in Washington State (and some of my favorites). Visit the Red Mountain AVA Alliance
