Savor the Summer: Your Ultimate Red Mountain Wine Experience

Welcome to Frichette Winery and your ultimate wine experience guide! Our friends challenged us to create a beautiful Red Mountain wine experience, and we were all in! Beyond the Tri-Cities, WA, Red Mountain is a hidden gem for wine enthusiasts. Join us as we share a delightful 2.5-day itinerary packed with unforgettable moments and exquisite wines.

Friday Late Afternoon | Evening

🍷 Frichette Winery – Naturally, we started at our beloved winery with Mystery

 Wine Flights and our popular cheese plate featuring the infamous Magic cheeseball. The Malbec and Cab were the crowd favorites, setting the perfect tone for the weekend.

🍷 Hedges Family Estate – Open for extended hours, we popped in to share a bottle of Champagne (yes, you read that right!) and their refreshing dry rosè. The ambiance was as delightful as the wines.

🍷 Avennia – With live music on the agenda, we took a quick one-minute drive to Avennia. Sipping their fine wines while enjoying the tunes was the perfect way to wind down the evening.


🍷 Col Solare – The day kicked off with all reds and a rosé. The Tenuta was the group's favorite, leaving us eager for more Red Mountain treasures.

🍷 Fidelitas – Known for its bold reds and Bordeaux varieties, Fidelitas impressed us with its top-notch Red Mountain knowledgeable staff and stunning views.

🍷 Upchurch Vineyard – Intrigued by their use of concrete eggs in winemaking, we savored their bold reds with incredible character and aging potential. The epic views were a bonus!


🍷 Anelare – Located just adjacent to Red Mountain and featuring some of its finest wines, Anelare’s famous pizzas paired wonderfully with their selections.

🍷 Elk Haven – Offering a unique wine and whiskey flight alongside delicious food, Elk Haven became a group favorite for its variety and breathtaking views.

🍷 Cooper Wine Company – We wrapped up our tour with great red wines and fantastic storytelling at Cooper, leaving us with lasting memories and a desire to return.
