Leavenworth has become a great place for wine lovers and for those wanting to know more about Washington wines. In recent years the Leavenworth area has become home to at least eight wineries. Within an hour's drive are at least eight more. In the village itself, the many area wineries have tasting rooms. And several wine shops also offer tasting events. With all of these choices planning a Leavenworth wine tasting tour weekend should be a piece of cake, right?
Make your reservation at one of Leavenworth's outstanding Bed and Breakfasts. Stay at Bavarian Orchard House and you'll have the chance to begin your wine weekend at their candlelight tasting hour where they offer samplings of several regional and international wines.
In the morning be sure you eat a great breakfast, especially if you'll be sampling the wine and not just tasting and spitting it out. If you're staying at a hotel or inn that offers a complimentary breakfast, great! If not, consider O'Grady's Pantry and Mercantile at Sleeping Lady Mountain Retreat. Bring your wine country maps with you and plan your day while you eat on the outdoor patio in fine weather. O'Grady's is a great place to pack up a picnic lunch for later. Be sure you add a bottle of local wine to that picnic.
Leavenworth and the surrounding area offer many incredible scenic drives with wineries and tasting rooms along the way. Take the drive deep into Icicle Canyon where you'll find Boudreaux Cellars at Eightmile Creek. Call or email for a tasting appointment.
Have you been out to the beautiful Silvara Winery? We first went out there shortly after they opened. It is a beautiful venue for weddings or parties with a spacious interior and a tasty selection of wines. It's in Peshastin on Highway 2, only 3 miles east from the center of Leavenworth. Recommended!
Off Chumstick Road, Eagle Creek Road leads to Eagle Creek Winery and Cottage. Be sure you have your camera along. You're going to want to record the charming views and vistas all over the alpine region.
If you don't have a designated driver along, you can book a wine tasting tour. A limousine driver will take you to three area wineries. It's an affordable and safe way to enjoy Leavenworth wine country.
On your second day in Leavenworth you can stay in town and visit the wine tasting rooms all along Front Street. Bella Terrazza Vineyards of Wenatchee has a wine tasting room on Front Street, as does Okanogan Estate and Vineyards. Have fun getting to know the consultants and learning about the wines. Take your time strolling down the street and visiting each room. You have all day.
In addition to wineries and wine tasting rooms there are several wine shops that offer some sampling. Monaco's Corner Store and The Cheesemonger's Shop are two. At the Cheesemonger's you can pick up a bottle of wine, some German beer and a lovely selection of imported cheese and cured meat.
You may plan your Leavenworth wine tour for one of the many festival weekends. If you do you'll need to make your reservations well in advance. The Leavenworth Wine Tasting Festival is in August and Wine and Chocolate in Leavenworth in mid-February.
Blue Sky Outfitters has an interesting tour...a Wenatchee Whitewater and Wine Tour. It starts at Kestrel Vintners then takes a whitewater adventure down the Wenatchee River between Leavenworth and Cashmere with what sound like some big water. At the end of the tour you change into dry clothes and have a sirloin BBQ with corn-on-the-cob, wine and all the trimmings.
