BENTON CITY, Wash. - As the Red Mountain American Viticulture Area continues to grow, more wineries are also moving into the area.
Frichette Winery is the newest addition and is scheduled to open at the end of September. Owners say the opening of the winery has been three years in the making.
When it's completed, it'll include an outdoor patio, seating for around 30 people, 5 selections of wine...both red and white, and a two acre vineyard.
"Red Mountain's known for high quality wines, amazing consistency and that's what we'll offer to our customers as well--just a very informal, community...almost like you're coming home to a family that hasn't seen you in forever," said Shae Frichette, the owner of Frichette Winery.
Owners say they also pride themselves on education and plan to offer concierge and virtual tasting's for customers who want to know more about wine.
