Please note that in an abundance of caution, the Olympic Peninsula Wineries has decided to postpone this tour. We will re-evaluate the situation in early April and decide whether to reschedule the event for later in the year. Thank you for your continued support.
Join the artisan winemakers of the Olympic Peninsula for the 2020 Wine, Cider and Cheese tour on April 25 & 26. This tour is proof that spring is upon us. Load up your vehicle and road trip to the North Olympic Peninsula where flowers are blooming, wine is being poured and where the freshest of ingredients are used to craft artisan cheeses of every variety. Your senses will delight with each sip of wines & ciders paired with these beautifully assembled cheeses from regional creameries.
Tickets are available online for $40 or $45 at the wineries and cideries and are non-refundable. These tickets include a souvenir wine glass, wine and cider tastings at each winery as well as the associated cheese pairings. Visitors who get their ticket stamped at all eight locations will be entered in a drawing for a wine and cheese themed gift basket. Purchase your tickets here!
Each tasting room will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day and some venues may have extended hours for non-tour visits. Tasting fees for those not participating in the ticketed event will be $10 per person at each winery or cidery. All venues will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day for the tour and some venues may have extended hours for non-tour visits. Please note that wineries have the discretion to stop offering new tastings prior to closing to ensure that each visitor has adequate time to finish their tasting prior to closing.
The Olympic Peninsula Wineries encourage responsible wine touring and recommend that you have a designated driver in your group. Designated drivers do not need to purchase a ticket and are always welcome to sample the food. While children are allowed in the tasting rooms, you must be 21 or over to purchase tickets and/or participate in wine and cider tasting.
Each participating winery and cidery on our Olympic Peninsula Wine and Cheese Tour has something unique and special to offer you and everyone in your party. You can choose to visit all participating locations or choose only a few. Here is a preview of what they will be offering. Check back as not all the wineries and cideries are listed yet!
