Home to more than 40 wineries, the Lake Chelan Valley is one of the fastest emerging wine regions in Washington State. It was designated as an official American Viticulture Area (AVA) in 2009. Whether you are an experienced wine connoisseur or just learning about wine, you're sure to have a fabulous time.
Tips for a fabulous day of wine tasting:
Step 1: Visit lakechelanwinevalley.com and select the map. Tasting room hours vary, so you will want to confirm the hours when mapping out your day.
Step 2: Choose a designated driver for the day, or better yet, take advantage of the private wine tour companies and leave the driving to them!
Step 3: Pack bottles of water and snacks. Remember to drink 8 oz of water for every glass of wine you consume. Crackers are a good way to clear your palate between wineries.
Step 4: Be flexible with your plans and have fun.
