Washington state’s newest license plate has a strong Tri-Cities connection: The photo is an aerial shot of The Benches (formerly known as Wallula Vineyards), a 675-acre vineyard located along the Columbia River about 20 minutes south/southeast of the Tri-Cities. The vineyard produces more than 15 grape varieties. Have a look:
Beautiful, isn’t it?!?
The plate will cost you anywhere from $75 to about $160, depending on your vehicle type. And it’ll be extra if you want the plate personalized. Want to get one? You can order now on the DOL’s website. There’s no word on how soon the new plates will be ready for shipping.
I have a feeling we’re gonna see a fair amount of these on Tri-Cities streets in 2023! A petition in support of the new plates got more than 4,000 signatures last winter.
Proceeds from the plate will support State of Washington Tourism.
