Olympic Peninsula Wineries Association welcomes Eaglemount Wine and Cider of Port Townsend to our group of Washington State wineries. Eaglemount Wine and Cider is located off Eaglemount Road, on a beautiful old homestead near the junction of Highway 20 and Highway 101 at Discovery Bay.
Eaglemount Cider of Port Townsend.
Eaglemount is known in the area for their several varieties of outstanding ciders: Homestead Cider (made of heirloom apples), Cyser (hard cider sweetened with honey), Ginger Cider (Homestead Cider and organic ginger), and Perry Cider (a slightly sweet pear cider). Their Washington state wines are also quite popular: grapes come from Arianses Vineyard near Mattawa, WA, which is known for producing outstanding wine grapes. They’re then aged underground in American French, and Hungarian oak barrels.
Eaglemount Wine and Cider has joined just in time to participate in our 2010 Harvest Olympic Peninsula Winery Tour, which takes place November 13 and 14, from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. It’s an ideal place to stop when traveling between the Washington State wineries of Port Angeles and Sequim and those in Port Townsend and Chimacum.
Bring your own glass to the 2010 Harvest Wine Tour of Washington State Wineries on the Olympic Peninsula.
The amazing taste of fall.
Our Harvest Wine Tour takes place November 13 and 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at all seven member wineries. This is a great excuse to head to the Blue Hole in Sequim, which will probably be in high demand come mid November. Olympic Cellars on the road to Port Angeles, and Camaraderie Cellars and Black Diamond Winery in Port Angeles will serve an assortment of autumnal appetizers alongside their wines.
The Olympic Rain Shadow stretches to scenic Port Townsend, where Sorenson Cellars and FairWinds Winery will serve their finest Washington State Wines and FinnRiver Farm and Cidery will amaze you with their delicious hard cider. Tasty treats will accompany the wines.
For extra fun, each winery will host a scavenger hunt for wine-related items during the weekend.
This is a self-guided tour: start in Port Angeles and work your way to Chimacum, start in Port Townsend and work your way back, or criss-cross the peninsula. Your itinerary is up to you. Our wineries supply outstanding Washington State wines and ciders, food, and fun.
Tickets for this self guided tour are available in advance or at the door on a first come basis for $25.00 and entitle you to complimentary wine tastings and appetizers at each winery during the weekend. A tasting fee of $5.00 per person per winery will apply to non ticketed visitors.
