The Lake Chelan Wine Valley is a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of Washington State, boasting some of the most picturesque landscapes and world-renowned wineries. 

The annual Taste Chelan Taste Tour is an event that food and wine enthusiasts look forward to each year, and for good reason. It’s a chance to indulge in the region’s finest wines paired with specially crafted foods while exploring its breathtaking surroundings. Visitors are raving about how much fun they’ve had touring around Lake Chelan and experiencing all the unique pairings the local wineries have prepared. 

A highlight of the tour has been the opportunity for guests to meet and chat with the winemakers themselves. They’re passionate about their craft and love sharing their knowledge with visitors. You can ask them anything about their wines, vineyards, and winemaking process, and they’ll happily oblige. This personal touch adds a level of intimacy to the experience, making it all the more memorable.

This year, The Lodge had the opportunity to host a “bonus stop” on the tour with a Nightcap event. Upon arrival, we greeted guests with a s’mores-making kit, wines to pair their marshmellowy treats with by Amos Rome Vineyards and Chelan Ridge Winery, and fire pits to cozy up to under our pavilion.
