Prosser is One of Five Top Wine Investment Regions in U.S.

PROSSER, Wash.--People like Richard Wallace are recognizing the impact Washington wine has on tourism in Eastern Washington.

As you make Your way into Prosser on I-82, it's easy to notice multiple wineries like Olsen and Airfield estates. And its this growth that has developers like Wallace renovating the Princess Theater downtown. After doing a little research on Prosser and surrounding towns, Wallace says it was the perfect opportunity to grow with the community.

"We felt like we could be apart of that transition into the downtown beautification program that they have going on here as well as embracing the wine industry that is exploding in this area," says Wallace.

Next door to the 290-seat Princess Theater, Wallace is also building 'Pizzeria Venti' and Delvino Wine bar. Both are scheduled to open September 27th. But the theater has already started showing NFL games on the weekend.
