Taste Wine On Horseback On This One-Of-A-Kind Washington Trail
Washington’s wine country is second to none, especially Red Mountain. The climate in this area makes for some of the most valuable lands in the state for vineyards, and it also happens to be exceptionally gorgeous. And thanks to Red Mountain Tours, you can see it all on horseback while tasting some incredible vino.
Red Mountain Trails provides trail rides in the beautiful vineyards and desert of the Red Mountain AVA, and this is an experience you won't want to miss.
The company is owned by a couple who has lived in the area their entire lives and absolutely love it (and it shows).
The company offers several ways to tour wine country, but of course, their horseback tour is the most popular.
And there's no need to be an experienced rider -- your guide will show you everything you need to know.
The wine tasting trail ride is 3.5 hours long and costs $265 per person.
You'll ride through the vineyards of Red Mountain and spend plenty of time wine tasting, stopping for a picnic lunch by the vines.
More than 15 wineries are located in the Red Mountain AVA, and plenty of other Washington wineries source their grapes from the area.
The area's desert climate makes growing conditions ideal, and the wine really is exceptional.
Want to skip the wine? Red Mountain Trails also offers one-hour horseback rides for $70.
You'll have all the beauty of the ride without the booze.
Red Mountain's name is a bit of a misnomer, as it is neither red nor mountainous.
Still, it's so incredibly beautiful, we don't mind.
You can book this amazing horseback wine tasting tour on
the company’s website. This is absolutely something that belongs on your Washington bucket list.
