What are your favorite things about a winery? Of course, great wines is #1, but what else contributes to your experience? For one, I love something super local and home-grown with a fantastic back story. I also love places with a great patio and entertainment. Also, it is a super plus to find a spot that practices sustainablility. Vin du Lac in Lake Chelan has all these features! I recently had the chance to tour Vin du Lac on a Chelan vacation weekend, and they are now on my must-visit list when wine tasting in the Chelan region.
It feels like there are a million wineries in Washington State, even more so concentrated around Lake Chelan. That is why I am always so excited to find a new one that I love! Succession Wines is on the Manson side of the lake and has both a fun atmosphere and fantastic wines alike. More details on my visit and why I think you should give them a try!
Looking for the perfect breakfast spot while visiting Lake Chelan? Blueberry Hills Farm in Manson, WA was a new find for us and now will be a breakfast/brunch staple when visiting sunny Lake Chelan!
Lake Chelan is an incredible place to enjoy your summer vacation! With a big beautiful lake and hot climates, it is no surprise that many people in Western Washington flock there. However, Chelan can be quite the quiet town in winter. We tried Chelan out in winter, and the city didn't miss a beat! if you are planning a winter Chelan visit, then this post will have lots of great info for you!
If you are looking for a winery with breathtaking views and fun events on the Manson area of Washington, you absolutely need to stop at Benson Vineyards Estate Winery! Be sure to click on this post for more pictures of their stunning views.
Lake Chelan Winery is one of my favorite places to wine taste in Chelan. Not only are their wines fantastic, but they have the cutest shop inside, including a MASSIVE cheese counter!
Summer 2017 is officially going by way too fast! We have already had the chance to do some super fun activities such as BBQ'ing out with friends, dined out on the waterfront in Kirkland, took our daughter to her first movie in Woodinville, and hit a concert at Marymoor Park. We have trips planned to Roche Harbor and Lake Chelan, in addition to plans to hit up Bumbershoot. What are we missing, and what are you up to Seattle?
Karma Vineyards in Lake Chelan is a winery I have been visiting in Eastern Washington for years, so how did I only just discover that they have a fun little cave you can visit where they age their wines too?! More info on what there is to see at the winery in this post. Salut!
Another Lake Chelan feature - this time I am sharing one of my favorite brunch spots! Once you discover Sorrento's Ristorante you will become a regular when in Chelan, because you just can't beat the ambiance! Oh yeah... they do brunch 😉
Nefarious Cellars in Lake Chelan is on my list of the top wineries to stop and visit while tasting around the lake. I think their lineup of whites and reds are stellar across the board, and I simply can't leave Lake Chelan without a case!
