As you may know, last spring the Lake Chelan wine region received its very own federal AVA designation. Since then, there’s been growing enthusiasm about the area as a great wine producing region. We’re on that train for certain.
Here’s a quote from the piece:
Though it currently has only 260 planted acres, the area is developing a reputation for excellent fresh, crisp Riesling and Chardonnay, as well as Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. “This area has potential to produce world-class whites,” Bob Jankelson says.
WineGirl Wines agrees. We’ve been sampling wines around the area as long as they’ve been making wines and have been excited by the potential for growing great wine grapes around this beautiful lake. That’s why we moved here. And the wine community here is a good one. We’ve hosted wine release parties here for years, always with a good response from great people. The area is getting some deserved recognition and we’re glad to be a part of its future.
