Leavenworth, Washington...
A Wine Trail for all Seasons

       Since when are wine and Leavenworth, Washington mentioned in the same sentence?  Since the number of wine-related Leavenworth businesses grew to include tasting rooms for wineries (representing several different Washington State appellations), and three retail wine shops (with tasting rooms); and the number of nearby operating wineries within an hour's drive continues to rise.

    If you know, or have heard of, Leavenworth, you probably associate this small village with all-things-German, with winter recreation, summer theater and music, and most of all, with the strong Bavarian theme that influences its appearance, its atmosphere, its dining opportunities, and its festivals.

     The Leavenworth Valley is tucked deep into the Cascade Mountains, setting the perfect alpine atmosphere for the town's theme.  Well-known for its year-round attraction of tourists, Leavenworth insures local businesses plenty of retail traffic during any season. 

     This little Bavarian village no longer appeals only to travelers looking to attend one of its many festivals throughout the year; many other activities serve as magnets year round for those seeking:  performing arts, winter sports, birding opportunities, fishing and hunting, out of the way golf courses, mountain bike trails, or health spas Certainly, the German and Bavarian dining and shopping opportunities appeal tomany travelers, but the popular Leavenworth community has reached a critical mass of wineries and tasting rooms that is propelling Leavenworth to the status of a Washington State wine-country destination. 

     You won't need your car to sample and purchase wine from eight Washington wineries with tasting rooms on or near Leavenworth's Front Street; they are located in the heart of "The Village."  A stroll along a charming walkway, adjacent to Bavarian-styled storefronts, offers access to shops with tasting bars for Silver Lake Winery (Woodinville & Yakima Valley), Glen Fiona (Walla Walla), Kestrel Vintners (Yakima Valley), Willow Crest (Yakima Valley), Pasek Cellars (Puget Sound), Icicle Ridge (near Leavenworth), Maison de Padgett Winery (Yakima Valley), and Okanogan Estate & Vineyards (Oroville in near Washington's border with Canada) inside the Gold Digger Cellars tasting room..  Three additional wine shops offer tastings and sales of an even wider selection of wines.

Leavenworth-area Wineries

     Within a 15-minute drive, you will find eight operating wineries and a regional tasting room and wine shop.  If you decide to venture out of Leavenworth in a car to visit some of these wineries, be sure to take a camera.  Each route on this Leavenworth wine trail is one to remember... each replete with "Kodak moments."   Consider the drive to Icicle Ridge Winery near Peshastin; the short distance between Leavenworth and North Road, heading toward Peshastin, includes spectacular glimpses of alpine mountain peaks, the river, orchards and vineyards, and leads to the magnificent log home that is the winery's tasting room. 

      Follow Chumstick Creek Road in a northeasterly direction and enjoy the roadside creek of the same name, until you reach Eagle Creek Road, a short distance from downtown Leavenworth.  Eagle Creek branches off of Chumstick Creek and soon leads you to the bucolic setting of the tiny Eagle Creek Winery and Cottage, adjacent to the winery's estate vineyards.  More Kodak moments!

      Still another spectacularly beautiful drive up Icicle Canyon to Boudreaux Cellars at Eightmile Creek takes you to heart of the Canyon deep in the Cascades where, in keeping with the agrarian traditions of the Taliaferro and Newsom families of Louisiana, wines are produced in small lots of hand-crafted, ultra-premium wines.  Wines are made in honor and celebration of Boudreaux, that infamous Cajun-folklore character known for his brilliant sense of humor and his pursuit of high adventure.  Be sure to call or email ahead for a tasting appointment.

      There are some wonderful festivals and special events in the Leavenworth area, so if you plan to visit, be sure to check the town's Calendar of Events, and if your visit coincides with an event, make your lodging reservations well ahead.
