More about Columbia Gardens Urban Wine & Artisan Village
In 2018, the Port and its partners completed initial public-sector investments, which included a winery waste-water treatment facility and three winery production and tasting room buildings. The Port leased those buildings to Bartholomew Winery and Monarcha Winery. In early 2019, work concluded on a pedestrian-friendly, interior road called Columbia Gardens Way between North Cedar and Date Street, a waterfront food truck plaza, utilities, sidewalks, additional parking, landscaping, a signalized pedestrian crossing, and public artwork. The finished road and utility work created shovel-ready sites for private sector development with parcels now available.
Work is now underway on Columbia Garden’s next waterfront building with tasting rooms for Cave B Estate Winery and Gordon Estate Winery. Those tasting rooms are anticipated to open in spring 2020.
In addition to Port and City investments, Benton County awarded the project $2.1 million in Rural County Capital Funds and the Hanford Area Economic Investment Fund Advisory Committee granted $150,000 toward Columbia Drive revitalization efforts.
