Pour and Enjoy: Guide to Wine Tasting in Chelan

Lake Chelan is one of the fastest-growing wine regions in Washington! The Lake Chelan Valley is home to many wineries and several craft breweries, cideries, and distilleries. Whether you are a wine enthusiast or just want to have a good time with friends, you will have a blast exploring the wine scene around The Lookout! Here is a complete guide to wine tasting in Chelan:

Where to Go

There are a ton of local wineries in Chelan that offer wine-tasting experiences. With so many to choose from, it’s hard to narrow down the list of where to visit. One Wines is one of the most unique experiences because of the overall atmosphere surrounding the trip. They have a gorgeous tasting room that is warm and inviting, plus a sunny patio with a view so you can sit back and sample wines with a view of the lake. Another place we recommend checking out is Vin Du Lac, which features an affordable tasting that is great for your entire group. You can choose three wines to sample from their daily collection for only $10. If you decide to purchase a bottle, which we highly recommend, your tasting fee is refunded! Some of the other local wineries to check out include Lake Chelan Winery, Karma Vineyards & Fielding Hills.

About the Wines in Lake Chelan Valley

One thing that makes wine tasting in Chelan such a fun activity is that the products you will find are top-notch. It was designated as an official American Viticulture Area in 2009. What sets the wines from the area apart from others is that they are made with grapes grown locally in Chelan and Washington vineyards. Having the main ingredients locally sourced and the process done nearby makes the taste much fresher than what you would find in a local grocery store. Lake Chelan Valley has 300 acres of total vineyard coverage, 30+ vineyards, and 40+ wineries and tasting rooms to visit during your trip!

Where to Enjoy the Wine

After your tasting adventure, you can continue the fun at our lakeside village. Once you sample all types of wines from around the region, you can find your favorite to enjoy with your family and friends at The Lookout. Whether you want to sit out on the patio or in the living room to enjoy your favorite television show, a glass of wine makes a relaxing evening in our village even better!
