Lake Chelan Crush


October in the Lake Chelan Wine Valley is gorgeous with brilliant sun, spectacular color and the smell of freshly fallen leaves. Join us in back-to-back weekends as we celebrate our annual Crush Festival. The barrel room doors swing wide open and the work in the vineyards comes to the crush pad. Come taste, stomp and dance. Watch the grapes tumble through the press and taste the raw juice that it produces. Get the inside scoop from the cellar master or wine maker on how the wine will taste come bottling time. Sit down with us at the table for a harvest party or a winemaker dinner and share in the experience of harvest season. Here are a list of events from the wineries:


Tildio Winery:

Tildio will be offering guided tours of the vineyard and the production area for groups of five people or less. Seating on the patio will remain by appointment.  Some of their red wines may go on sale as well, to make room for the new stuff coming in. They will still be serving wine by the bottle or the glass, unless we move into phase 2.  At that point they will go back to tastings. Hours will be 12pm-5pm. Open 7 days a week!

Mellisoni Vineyards:

Friday through Sunday 2pm to 6pm

October 10th and 11th.  Mellisoni will have Chef Tyler offer Bar-B-Que themed menu for appetizers and plates.  Visit their website and click on Chef’s Menu tab to see updated menu for food being offered.
