BENTON CITY -- A Canadian investment company has outbid wine industry representatives to buy 670 acres of prime wine grape growing land on Red Mountain in eastern Washington.
The Tri-City Herald said that Aquilini Properties LP had a winning bid of $8.3 million. The company owns the National Hockey League team Vancouver Canucks and Rogers Arena.
The Kennewick Irrigation District put the land up for sale over the weekend. All of the 31 parcels will receive Yakima River water through a $20.2 million local improvement district project.
Red Mountain, near Benton City, is the state's smallest American Viticultural Area, or designated wine grape-growing region. It is home to several wineries. Dozens of other winemakers in the state use grapes from the area.
