Travel along scenic roads through beautiful orchards or take a hike up Cowiche Canyon’s Wine Trail to reach Wilridge Vineyard, a gorgeous vineyard, winery, and distillery sitting on 80 acres of land overlooking the Canyon. Those 80 acres are a certified Organic and Biodynamic Estate Vineyard and Orchard. In tune with their environment, Wilridge is the “greenest” winery in Washington and their tasting room is solar powered. So, spend the afternoon sipping European-styled wines in their 100-year-old farmhouse tasting room, or enjoy a picnic and explore the rolling hills covered in vineyards and orchards, knowing you’re supporting an environmentally conscious local establishment.
Wilridge Winery makes over thirty different wines and brandies in myriad styles, so you are sure to find some favorites. All the wines and brandies are available every day for tasting and purchase at the Farmhouse. Wilridge staff will also design creative flights for you to try. Where else can you sip wine or brandy while looking at the grapevines, apple trees, and pear trees from whence they came? You may also tour the winery and distillery, which is a ten-minute walk from the tasting room
In addition to their myriad wines and spirits, if you have friends who prefer beverages other than wine and brandy, Wilridge also sells beer, cider and mead from other craft producers, and soft drinks and Gatorade for hikers.
Bring the kids and pets along too and let them play on the swings, climb on the rocks, and run through the mapped-out trails surrounding the establishment. You’ll be able to relax with a glass of wine or brandy in your hand, surrounded by friends, while the kiddos and dogs tire themselves out. Can you imagine a better way to spend a spring afternoon? We can’t.
Looking for some low-key fun to enjoy with your best friends and family? We recommend checking out their Wine Down Wednesdays every Wednesday between Memorial Day to Labor Day. Or if you’re around on a weekend during this time frame, make a pit stop on your way out of town on Sunday for their Sunday Serenade on the farmhouse porch. Both of these times you can taste wine and brandy while enjoying live music, good food, and a great atmosphere. You can also find paint parties, artist pop-ups, live band concerts, yoga on the lawn, and many more activities so make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
