by | Aug 25, 2022 | Things to Do

Harvest wines

Harvest season in Lake Chelan is one of the most gorgeous times of the year. It’s the time of year when locals and visitors alike can enjoy the crisp autumn air, when the leaves change to an array of beautiful colors, and of course, when the local wineries celebrate their harvesting of grapes!

Wine Harvest is an eventful time for the growers, who are up early each morning to pick the grapes by hand. But it’s also a time for celebration, as the community comes together to enjoy harvest wine pairings, live music, farmers markets, farm-to-table food, and a host of events and experiences

So prepare for the excitement as the 2022 Harvest season turns a new leaf in Lake Chelan with these fun new events.
