The nine artisan wineries and cideries of the Olympic Peninsula invite you to join them to Sip and Savor the Flavors of Fall. The Olympic Peninsula Harvest Wine and Cider Tour will take place on November 9 and 10, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The region’s finest winemakers have expertly matched locally made wines brimming with character with mouth-watering harvest inspired appetizers with many locally sourced ingredients. As you drink in the bounty of all harvest has to offer, you will be amazed by the beauty of fall on the Olympic Peninsula, from breathtaking mountains to the mesmerizing Salish Sea.
Tickets for this self guided tour are available in advance for $40 or $45 at the door. These tickets include a souvenir wine glass, wine and cider tastings at each winery as well as the harvest inspired food pairings. Visitors who get their ticket stamped at all nine locations will be entered into a drawing for a harvest inspired gift basket. Purchase tickets here.
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. Tasting fees for those not participating in the ticketed event will be $10 per person at each winery or cidery.
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 taste 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.
