Sip and Savor

Wine tasting in autumn – brilliant sun, delicious reds, crackling fireplace and the smell of freshly fallen leaves.




Lake Chelan is more than a lake. The Lake Chelan Valley bursts with wintertime fun. Attend Washington’s largest winter festival, snowboard or ski down the slopes of Echo Valley, take a trip up to beautiful Stehekin for peace and serenity or sip and savor next to a crackling fireplace at one of our many local wineries.
