Transport yourself to Wine Country-Lake Chelan
The beautiful Lake Chelan Wine region offers so many options for grape varietals, views, and food. Our recent visit there, the first part of October, greeted us with crisp fall air, blue sky, and breathtaking lake scenery.
When arriving in Chelan, we made our first stop for lunch and wine tasting at Tsilliam Cellars. Their spectacular and elegant wine selection along with their menu options make this a great way to kick off our weekend.
Mellisoni Vineyards has a breathtaking view to sit and enjoy their lineup of complex varietals, including sparkling, white, rose’ and reds.
Stop and enjoy the patio hillside setting at Nefarious Cellars. The view of the lake, which has such a relaxing vibe for you to enjoy their selection of whites, rose’ and reds.
Hard Row to Hoe is up on the hillside outside of Manson with winery views. You must hear the story behind their name, visit the gift shop and restroom wallpaper which give you a glimpse of the humor and heart behind their expressive wines.
Wapato point Cellars offered something I haven’t seen in a while-which is gone with the past: a free flight option for wine tasting and a ten-dollar flight option…thank you for keeping tasting fees in check! The wine was outstanding and complex. The charcuterie board had a great mix of flavors to go with our wine flight. The relaxed feeling, we got while sitting outside on the lawn made the whole experience one for which we cannot wait to come back.
If you love sparkling, be sure to make Karma Vineyards a stop on your visit. They have a beautiful well-crafted selection of sparkling, along with some great whites and reds. The local food menu for our lunch made a perfect way to leave Lake Chelan. Also, check out their wine cave dining option on their website.
We stayed in Manson and loved walking the town to see what is offered for food, wine tasting, and evening entertainment.
Lake Chelan is a must-see destination for a beautiful wine tasting experience and many options to refresh your cellar.
