The Lake Chelan Wine Valley bustles in July.
At the tasting rooms, the decks and patios have come alive with laughter as friends sit with a bottle of wine. Moonlit nights are filled with live music and wine and seats are full around the lake. On the lake, the sun plays off the waves and the buzz of watercraft is muted by the sound of tractors humming along in the hills. Take a hike into our hills, stroll through town or step into the water. Whatever you do, pause a moment to look around and take in the beauty of the Lake Chelan Wine Valley - it's naturally intoxicating.
Live art parties, live music and bocce ball – there is always something to do at WineGirl Wines. Join the party around the fire pit or the banter at the counter, take a wine flight or better yet buy a bottle and sit on the patio. Locals head to Win . . .
No matter how many wineries you visit in the valley, the views will never cease to astound you. Yet the view at Mellisoni Vineyards has a personality of its own. Like Rob and Donna Mellison, it positively radiates. Turn your back to the lake and look . . .
