RICHLAND, Wash. -- A worldwide honor for Tagaris Winery! Zagat named it one of eight wineries in the world with fabulous food.

"And as I turned to the next page, guess what, Taverna Tagaris at Tagaris Winery in Richland, Washington, and my heart stopped...and I thought it can't be, it can't be," said Tagaris President, Penny Morgan.

The list included five other U.S. Wineries. As well as one from Canada and another from Italy.

A New York based Zagat writer had the chance to visit Tagaris, secretly. She praised the Richland winery for having a menu that suggests wine pairings with each food item.

"To have the Tri-Cities have the honor of having Tagaris make this top list is just amazing. It puts us on the map as being a really wonderful resource for people to come here and visit a world renowned place," said the Tri-Cities President of Travel Leaders, Sondra Wilson.

The Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau calls this a significant endorsement for our region as a travel destination.
