Winery Experiences

Washington's best Tasting room

While the grounds, the trout ponds and the peacock are all great reasons for visiting, you’re most likely coming here to try new wines or to stock up on your favorites. The assortment here includes select wines available only at the winery. A choice of gourmet cheese and other supplies offer the perfect accompaniments for a picnic at the Chateau.
