There’s a name to the calm one feels after crush. It’s called November. November offers the chance to spend the morning under a down comforter with the newspaper and a cup of coffee. The smell of wood smoke is omnipresent in the air and vines are starting to sleep. There might be a dusting of snow in the hills, but the driving is easy. The holiday season brings friends together for a post-Thanksgiving barrel tasting in the Chelan Valley and the wineries feel warm and unhurried. We’re still in the cellar, watching fermentation and putting the new juice into barrels. Conversations in the wineries range from the highs and lows of this year’s harvest to the highs and lows of this year’s weather. November is the time to linger over a wine flight and rest against the tasting counter. Come December, some of our wineries close for a couple of months, so be sure to come see us soon. Bring a sweater and your sunglasses, take a hike into our hills, stroll through town or sit and look out on the water. Whatever you do, pause a moment to look around and take in the beauty of the Chelan Valley – it’s naturally intoxicating.
