It’s February – the month of love!

And the Lake Chelan valley has the perfect way to celebrate. Visit Lake Chelan for one of two Red Wine & Chocolate weekends and immerse yourself in all the best things: red wine, chocolate, and love!

Red Wine & Chocolate spans two weekends, February 8th & 9th and 15th & 16th. It’s the perfect mid-winter getaway for couples and friends alike. Spend a weekend away winery hopping in Chelan and Manson and tasting exclusive wine selections paired with decadent chocolate treats. The tasting rooms are bustling with friendly faces and warm smiles. The surrounding landscape is awe-inspiring. It’s a perfect way to celebrate love!


Taste to Your Heart’s Content

Wineries throughout the valley welcome visitors to their tasting rooms where you can enjoy special tastings of limited edition red wines. Winemakers carefully and thoughtfully pair unique, often homemade, chocolate treats for you to enjoy with your wine. You’ll have a chance to try treats like wine-infused truffles, chocolate fondue, and gourmet s’mores! Savor these alongside a robust glass of port and your favorite person and you’ll be set.

Whether it’s a romantic getaway for two or a girl’s weekend away, everyone is sure to enjoy a night out with amazing food and company.


Savor the Scenery

Nothing compares to a quiet winter scene in Lake Chelan. The snow on the rolling hills makes everything seem a little quieter and time itself seems to move more slowly. Many wineries light a fire for you to cozy up next to with your wine and chocolate. Chatting with friends old and new and taking in the stunning scenery is the perfect way to pass a February afternoon! Or, after a long day out and about, curl up on the couch in your rental to watch the sunset behind the mountains with your love.
