03 Aug August Spotlight – Terra Blanca Winery and Estate Vineyard
Terra Blanca’s Tuscan-inspired architecture includes a beautifully appointed 10,000-square-foot tasting room, complete gourmet-style kitchen and several banquet rooms to accommodate both large and small groups. The patio seating offers a breathtaking view overlooking the Horse Heaven Hills and Terra Blanca’s estate vineyard. The manicured grounds include an amphitheater for summer concerts, a waterfall and Terra Blanca’s popular caves. Wines from Terra Blanca have been described as “polished and effusive” and as having a “big structure…with a solid finish” by Wine Spectator magazine. Terra Blanca Winery is located on Red Mountain.
The Red Mountain AVA is a sub-appellation of the Yakima Valley. This small, burgeoning wine region is becoming a hot-spot for new vineyards. Red Mountain grapes—mostly Bordeaux and Rhône varietals—are among the most expensive and the source of an endlessly growing list of 90+ scoring wines.
