Sip and Savor

Wine tasting in autumn – brilliant sun, warming reds, deep blue water and friendly faces abound.




Fall is for lovers. There’s something simply irresistible about laid-back autumn days in Lake Chelan. The foliage is hued in orange, yellow and red, wine is flowing at harvest festivals and magic-hour hikes are somehow even more breathtaking. Now is a perfect time to plan a grown-ups-only retreat to savor the past summer’s sweet rewards.

Fall Barrel Tasting

A weekend that has it all: great views, long conversations at the tasting counter, the smell of oak barrels wet with wine and wood smoke in the morning air. There’s a little bit of breathing room everywhere you go and everyone you meet has relaxed into post-harvest glee. Taste warming reds right from the barrel and linger over a sample of what could be a double-gold winner at future wine competitions.

Here is what our wineries will be sampling right from the barrel:

Cairdeas Winery – 2015 Petite Sirah Port

Rio Vista Wines – 2016 Pinot Noir

Siren Song Vineyard Estate and Winery – 2015 Estate Syrah

Tsillan Cellars – 2016 Estate Syrah

WineGirl Wines – 2016 Lake Chelan Cabernet Franc
