The Historic Wine Tours of Downtown Wenatchee joins the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center’s Beloved Tour Lineup – 3/22/2024

Indulge in a Journey Through Wenatchee’s Wine and History!

On March 23, April 27, and May 25, between 12:30-5 PM, we invite you to delight the senses and ignite your curiosity in these unforgettable historic wine tours of downtown Wenatchee.

Led by local historian Chris Rader, our adventure begins at the Museum, where we’ll uncover the fascinating early Wenatchee Valley wine history, featuring captivating pioneers like Dutch John Galler.

Our journey through time commences once you step foot onto these historic streets. Chris will be our knowledgeable guide, unraveling the stories behind several iconic buildings, such as the historic Cascadian Hotel and the Wenatchee Hotel Buildings.

Each step will reveal a new layer of Wenatchee’s rich heritage, waiting to be explored. As we sip and swirl, Chris will regale us with tales of the buildings that line our route, immersing us in this region’s histories, flavors, and aromas. Our path will lead us to a selection of wineries, including Norwood, the Visit Wenatchee Visitors Center & Tasting Room, Horan Estates, and Watercore for snacks.

A delightful array of wines from local wineries awaits our pleasure in tasting. Join us on this immersive journey through downtown Wenatchee’s history, architecture, and wine scene in one unforgettable tour. Let’s raise a glass to the past and toast to discoveries!

Guests 21 years and older can sign up for this all-inclusive wine-tasting and history tour today!
