Wines of West Richland
The wine industry of West Richland, Washington is shifting into full gear as the nearby Red Mountain is poised to become a prime location for vineyards and wineries. Over the next five years, Red Mountain is expected to triple its wineries from the existing ten to some forty major vineyards and wine makers.

Red Mountain stands tall among all the wine regions of Washington because of its unique combination of soil condition and temperature that produce grapes that have the potential to rival the best wines of the world.
Most people say that Red Mountain is the perfect place to grow grapes, and thus, is the perfect place for wine making as well.

These Bordeaux vineyards are used in most of the world’s most famous red wines find Red Mountain so akin to their native land that they took to the land of Red Mountain as if it were home.
The Symbiosis Between Red Mountain and West Richland
Red Mountain can very well put the United States at the top of the list of the world’s best wine producing countries, alongside the historically famous wine makers, France and Italy. Already, some of the country’s most famous grape growers are creating vineyards in the Red Mountain. These vineyards make their own local wines, and at the same time, supply grapes to prestigious wine makers all across the country.
Already, the nearby residential area of West Richland is feeling the effects of the wine boom in Red Mountain. West Richland stands to gain from the activity in Red Mountain as tourists and business people look to West Richland to provide them with accommodations as they visit Red Mountain.
West Richland makes an ideal residential backdrop to Red Mountain. The small town, rustic atmosphere that West Richland has managed to keep, complements the majestic, sprawling vineyards of Red Mountain. As such, both places work together in a symbiotic relationship that benefits both places.
Red Mountain and West Richland of Washington State, both stand side by side as they each prepare for the changes that they are about to undergo separately as individual places, and collectively, as part of the greater area of the Columbia Basin.
