DescriptionAlthough situated in the arid terrain of eastern Washington, Benton City benefits from a location along the Yakima River. Irrigation canals built in the early 20th century brought precious water to this parched natural environment, enabling what is essentially desert land to flourish with pastures, orchards and vineyards. Today the Red Mountain area, east of town via SR 224, is a premium red wine-producing region.
