Wineries promote green wine

Posted: Updated:

ZILLAH, Wash -- Wineries in the Yakima Valley are using something new to attract visitors this weekend - green wine.    

It's all part of St. Patrick's day celebrations. White wine is turned green with food coloring.

The wineries are looking for new events to market the growing industry, and think people are ready to switch from green beer to green wine, at least for this weekend.

Organizers say they are adding other events like a 4th of July "Red, White and Blues" event.
