Lake Chelan, WA
Discover the sophisticated side of Washington’s summer playground, where sandcastles and jet skis are making way for (really
good) wine. Serious winemakers have discovered Chelan’s “lake effect”—its ability to retain heat and lengthen the growing
season in this otherwise chilly region. This Northwest hot spot is home to more than 15 local wineries harvesting grapes from
the Columbia Valley. What we're excited about? The region's aromatic Alsatian whites: Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris.
