In our last post, we began outlining a driving route for someone visiting the Olympic Peninsula from Seattle. Here is more of a perfect day on the Peninsula:
Fourth Stop: Wind Rose Cellars
Leave Eaglemount Winery outside Port Townsend and drive to Sequim. This adorable town, famous for it’s lavender fields, is home to the Olympic Peninsula’s newest winery, Wind Rose Cellars.
Head West on Hwy 20 for about two miles. Hit Hwy 101 and take a right. About 16 miles down, take the East Washington St exit and take a right on N. Rhodefer Rd. Take another right on W. Sequim Bay Rd and then a final right on Bell Bottom Road. Wind Rose Cellars will be on the left at 233 Bell Bottom Rd.
Fifth Stop: Olympic Cellars
Half way between Sequim and Port Angeles is a huge, historic barn, which houses Olympic Cellars.
Get back on Hwy. 101 N and drive about nine miles. Olympic Cellars will be on your left, so you need to exit the freeway at Agnew Cutoff and get back on in the opposite direction briefly. You can’t miss the big Olympic Cellars barn! 255410 U.S. 101, Port Angeles.
Sixth Stop: Black Diamond Winery
Keep heading West on Hwy 101 for about 6 miles until you arrive in the town of Port Angeles. Follow the signs to Forks and stay on 101 through town. Take a right on South Pine St. This road curves to the left and becomes West 16th. Then, take a full left onto South Pine St. and continue on to Black Diamond Road. About three miles up the road, you reach Black Diamond Winery on the right, at 2976 Black Diamond Rd. Enjoy the scenic vineyard and delicious fruit wines here.
We have two more wineries to guide you toward. Come back later this month for the rest of the driving route!
Are you visiting Seattle soon? Do yourself a favor and spend a day on the stunningly beautiful Olympic Peninsula, a scenic ferry ride and one hour drive from downtown Seattle.
A great way to see the peninsula and view the scenery is by taking a wine tour. We have eight member wineries on the peninsula. You can see them all during one full day of touring the Peninsula! Note: Make sure to check winery listings for when you can stop by or make an appointment for a tasting!
First Stop: FinnRiver Farm and Cidery in Chimacum
Once you’ve crossed the Hood Canal Bridge, head about 10 miles further until you see Center-Sr 104 loop and take a right. Take an immediate right into Center Rd. Four miles later, turn on Country Meadow Rd. About a quarter mile down, take a right on Barn Swallow Rd. This brings you to Finnriver Farm and Cidery, at 62 Barn Swallow Road in Chimacum.
Second Stop: FairWinds Winery in Port Townsend
This is a fun route through the back roads to the adorable town of Port Townsend.
Eaglemount Wine and Cider in Port Townsend
Head south on Barn Swallow Rd., back the way you came in. Take a left on Country Meadow Rd and then take a right to get back on Center Rd. Head about two and a half miles and take a left on Rhody Dr. Three miles later continue onto Airport Cutoff Rd. This will bring you to Rte. 20 E. Drive about two miles down and take a left on S. Jacob Miller Rd. Two more miles and take a right on Hastings Ave West. FairWinds Winery will be on the left, at 1984 Hastings Ave W.
Third Stop: Eaglemount Winery in Port Townsend
If you leave Seattle around 9 a.m. it will probably be about lunch time when you leave FairWinds. Head into Port Townsend to get a bite before getting back on the road.
Get back on Rte. 20 heading West. Six miles down, take a left on Eaglemount Rd. Eaglemount Wine and Cider will be about two miles down, at 2530 Eaglemount Rd. Cider is a nice, light way to start a day of tastings!
