Cascade Valley

Cascade Valley wine country is divided into three sub-regions: Lake Chelan, Leavenworth, and Wenatchee. Glacier-fed Lake Chelan boasts impressively clear, cold water. Its wineries are located on its shores as well as nearby rivers and streams. Filled with Bavarian charm, Leavenworth offers many tasting rooms and wine shops in the heart of its village, and in the surrounding Cascade foothills and the Wenatchee River’s scenic shores. Wenatchee Valley enjoys 300 days of sun and wonderful wines.
