Crush Festival: First two Weekends
Organizer: Lake Chelan Wine Alliance
Website: No Website
Relive your first “Crush” – visit the wineries of Lake Chelan in October! Come to our wineries and experience the joy of winemaking. Join us the weekends of October 1-2 and October 8-9 for special demonstrations and harvest related events at all participating wineries in the Lake Chelan Valley.
Visitors can take short hops between the local wineries to observe first-hand the steps involved in grape harvest and wine production, including the opportunity to interact with the growers and winemakers and sample the award-winning wines of the region. Local restaurants will feature specialty food items paired with distinctive local wines and there will be places for visitors to kick off their shoes to stomp grapes the old-fashioned way.
Lake Chelan Wine Valley was recognized as an American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the Federal Register in April of 2010 . Several features distinguish the Lake Chelan Wine Valley from its neighboring AVA’s including its elevation, soil derived from the crystalline granite of the Cascade Mountains, location in the rain shadow of the Northern Cascade Mountains, distinctive U-shaped topography and vineyards located around Lake Chelan that capitalize on the “lake effect” of moderate air temperatures.
