Pacific Northwest wines are slowly winning over the world's connoisseurs. One Mid-Columbia winery just won over the world's most-famous food critics! Zagat Surveys, maybe the most respected independent food-rating system in the world, recently included Tagaris Winery in its TOP 8 WINERIES WITH FABULOUS FOOD list!

Located in south Richland just across the freeway from Queensgate, Taverna Tagaris has long been a local favorite for its restaurant. After a surprise visit from Zagat, a much, much larger audience is now going to be interested in Mid-Columbia wineries.

A pleasant surprise is how many comments on the article agreed. Wine connoisseurs are calling Washington's vineyards some of the most underrated in the world.

At Taverna Tagaris, the Zagat people loved the variety on the menu, the locally-sourced ingredients, the use of the vineyard's wines IN the food and the helpful staff who educate visitors on pairing Mid Columbia wine with Mid Columbia food.

Congrats Tagaris! This is holiday present the entire community can enjoy with you!
