Come join us on our first and only tour of the year to the Columbia River Valley into the heart of Washington's wine country where virtually ALL of the grapes used by the Puget Sound wineries are actually grown! The driving portion of this tour will be over the Cascades via Cayuse and Chinook passes, but will include some roads in eastern Washington that you may not have seen before as we travel amonst some of the vineyards and into Richland. We'll be staying at the Red Lion Inn Hanford House on the Columbia River at 802 George Washington Way in Richland where we have a block of 40 rooms reserved at a rate of $99 for a standard room and $120 for a suite, including a Sunday breakfast buffet. We'll have reserved PNWR parking and a car wash area at the hotel. Saturday evening we will have a three entree Italian Buffet, including dessert for $45 per person at the private Meadow Springs Country Club. The Country Club will be parking our cars on their driving range for photo ops. We will have a guest speaker from one of the area wineries explaining why the Columbia Valley and Red Mountain now produce some of the best wine grapes in the world. Sunday morning we will have a guided tour to three of the local wineries before departing on your own to more wineries/sights or heading home. It will be a fun and educational weekend! Don't miss it!
