When Wine and Real Estate Merge
When wine and real estate merge everybody wins. The Port of Kennewick recently announced that they have awarded two winemakers the coveted right to open wineries on Port property.
The Port took applications August of 2016 to fill two spots for Phase 1 of the Columbia Garden Urban Wine and Artisan Village. The winners were announced recently and Vino La Monarcha and Seattle’s very own Bartholomew Winery (we will miss you Bart) will soon make their homes in Kennewick.
These wineries are fine choices for the Port’s project. Both wineries are winemaker driven, small boutique, premium wineries. Columbia Gardens will serve as their production centers as well as their operational headquarters. Meaning you will be able to visit a production facility and tasting room and you may even be able to meet the winemaker between fermentations, punch-downs, racking and bottling!
Columbia Garden Urban Wine and Artisan Village will open sometime in 2017!
