Drink And Dine Your Way Through Red Mountain, Washington’s Underrated Wine And Food Trail

Fellow Washingtonians — especially wine-loving Washingtonians — we need to talk about Red Mountain. This incredibly underrated region has gone from a rather sparse part of our state to a little-known hot spot for amazing food and vino. Considering this is where quite a bit of our food and wine grapes are raised and grown, it should come as no surprise that the local dining scene is fantastic.

Red Mountain (which is neither red, nor a mountain) is situated between Benton City and Richland. And in case it’s been awhile since you’ve visited the area, we put together a guide on how to eat and drink your way through it.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Tri Cities hasn’t always been a top tourist destination, but this area now has some amazing attractions. And if you go between April and October, you’ll definitely want to stock up on fresh food at Richland’s Farmers Market.
