Chelan Ridge Winery is the result of many long days, weeks, months, and years of passion
Last Saturday (Feb. 19) I got the chance to visit several of the local area wineries during the Red Wine and Chocolate event. It was a perfect day of sunshine, smiling faces, and lots of visitors and locals alike enjoying the festival.
The annual Red wine and Chocolate event in Lake Chelan is growing larger each year as more wineries participate in this very popular celebration.
Visit the Lake Chelan Wineries this weekend February 19 and 20, 2011 for the Red Wine And Chocolate event, and see how each one pairs their own unique wine with chocolate. This event only happens once a year so be sure to visit our local wineries to taste one of a kind Lake Chelan Wines, and fantastic chocolates!

Of the 24,040 acres (9,730 hectares) within the AVA’s boundaries, only 260 acres (105 hectares) were planted with wine grapes which was producing wine for fifteen wineries as of 2009.
