Imagine the perfect summer day and multiply it by 31.
In the Lake Chelan Wine Valley, August is a month of perfect summers days of morning walks, afternoon swims, evening concerts and dancing under the stars.

Wine flights inspire casual conversation among strangers and new comers immediately feel like part of the party. Order a glass and linger on the patio. A light breeze will be your constant companion and the worries of the world evaporate in the sunlight. Take a hike into our hills, stroll through town or step into the water.
