What you'll do
1. Vineyard tour. Journey to the corners of the vineyard with breathtaking views of Lake Chelan and the Cascade Mountains. A truly unique vineyard tour experience. Learn how "wine is made in vineyard". I explain how grapevines grow and how the vineyard is farmed sustainably. The vineyard is easy walking over uneven terrain with beautiful views throughout. 2. Winery tour. We will then proceed to the winery where I will describe how wine is made. We will look at the winery equipment and how it used to process grapes. The winery is full of different tanks, vessels and barrels and we will discuss the use of them and how they effect the taste of the wine. I will describe the barrel-aging process and why that is important. 3. Wine Tasting. We will sample a variety of our award-winning, ultra-premium wines that were made from the grapevines that we just viewed. We will also sample wines that are not finished yet out of the tank or barrel. We will sample 6 wines accompanied by a selection of charcuterie, cheese and crackers
I am a winemaker of 15 years and share my knowledge and passion for grape growing and wine making. The growing region of Lake Chelan is a new AVA (American Viticultural Area) with distinct growing conditions of geology and climate. My wines reflect this terroir and I love showing off the vineyards and what they produce through curated wine tasting of wines made out of the grapevines which we will walk through and explore. I love talking about what makes wine distinctive and why they taste the way they do. I put a lot of passion into my winemaking technques and will discuss my approach and techniques with a winery tour of equipment and barrels and wine making pro
