KENNEWICK, Wash. —

The Red Mountain wine-growing region in Benton County has become an internationally-known appellation with a growing number of wineries and hundreds of acres of vines.

Further growth on the ridge between West Richland and Benton City is inevitable.

The Tri-City Herald reports (http://is.gd/2UMckt) that Benton County commissioners last week approved a master site plan for the area

Benton County officials, winery and vineyard operators, landowners and local agencies have been working since the mid-2000s on a plan to guide that future development.
