Lake Chelan Crush 2021 is almost here! This annual festival is always a stomping good time where you can get up close and personal with the winemaking process. Our Chelan wines are known worldwide for their excellence, so getting this peek behind the curtain is an exciting glimpse for wine enthusiasts! Come celebrate the harvest–and the wine–with us with Chelan Crush 2021!
When is the Chelan Crush 2021?
This year, the festival takes place the first two weekends of October. You can get your crush on October 2nd and 3rd as well as October 9th and 10th.
What is the Crush?
The annual crush festival invites guests to visit Chelan wineries and take part in the winemaking process! During these weekends, you can use your feet to stomp grapes and enjoy the harvest fun! Watch grapes go through the press and taste the fresh juice! You’ll also get a unique look at the winemaking process as the vineyard work comes to the crush pads at each winery.
Where can I crush it?
Various wineries in Chelan will be offering Crush events this year! And because Chelan is a registered AVA, the wine produced from the grapes here is uniquely wonderful. Our local wines are so wonderful, people travel from all over the world to try them! You can see a list of local wineries here.
What else is there to do?
If you want to do more than crush & taste, you can get more involved in the harvest process! Learn from cellar masters or winemakers about how this wine will taste when it’s time to be bottled. Sit down for a meal to celebrate the harvest, or dine with winemakers to learn more about their work.
