Red Mountain

If you were to drive out Sunset Road on the far west end of the small village of West Richland, Washington, you would find a lovely array of angular fields filled with multiple rows of vines. Vines of all variety of grapes, who's distinction is difficult to see with the subtle green shades of the spring and summer. As cooler weather approaches, and the various leaves turn their lovely autumn shades, you can see vast fields of reds next to patches of varying shades of gold and ochre. It's quite a sight to behold. With the gently sloping protection of Red Mountain, this nestled area of vineyards and tasting rooms really is quite a magical and serene at any time of year.
