Our Favorite Leavenworth Wineries That You Must Visit
1. Eagle Creek Winery
Eagle Creek Winery is Leavenworth’s oldest winery and among one of the most popular. They produce only the highest quality premium wines from grapes that were selectively hand-picked in their very own vineyard. The winery is nestled right in the beautiful Cascade Mountains, but guests will feel as if they have been transported to the wine country of Tuscany from the moment they walk through the doors. The Italian-inspired decor gives off an enchanting aura that makes for a one-of-a-kind experience. During a tour, the winery owner himself will escort you through his personal wine cellar. Afterward, you and your partner can indulge in a bottle of wine on the gorgeously lit patio or treehouse overlooking the vineyards. If you’ll be in Downtown Leavenworth, don’t forget to stop by Eagle Creek Winery’s D’Vinery Tasting Room! This quaint tasting room is adorned with hand-carved woodwork (created by the winemaker himself), original paintings, and stunning mountain views. Here, you’ll be able to taste Eagle Creek’s award-winning wines or purchase a bottle to take home!
We invite you to take advantage of our exclusive Eagle Creek Wine Experience package during your stay at Pine River Ranch! This vacation special includes three bottles of Eagle Creek wine, a cheese and baguette tray, and a free tasting at either the winery or D’Vinery tasting room!

3. Boudreaux Cellars
As one of the best wine tasting in Leavenworth experiences, Boudreaux Cellars is a destination for unforgettable wine. The selections at here are the product of years of appreciating the art of fine wine. They understand that the smooth, deep, and layered compositions of wine take time and need mysterious nuances of smoke, hickory, oak, blackberry, cherry, and candy. There are also two fabulous tasting locations for you to choose from, one of which is located right in Downtown Leavenworth. The New Orleans French Quarter-inspired atmosphere creates a memorable setting for you to enjoy some of the state’s best wine.
4. Silvara Vineyards

The tasting room’s stone fireplaces, outdoor patios, and gourmet dinners create an inviting environment for some of the best wine tastings in Leavenworth.
5. Stemilt Creek Winery
Stemilt Creek Winery is known for producing its medium, full-bodied wines in a minimalist production facility. After the wines have been fermented in 200-gallon vessels, they spend between 20 and 28 months in barrels depending on product prior to bottling. The product is a bold and tasty wine that is well worth the cravings.
6. Wedge Mountain Winery
Located just five miles east of Leavenworth, Wedge Mountain Winery is a family owned and operated vineyard set right beside the Wenatchee River.

You can even taste wines in an underground cave, behind the thick walls of a straw bale building, or in a beautiful orchard garden.
7. Hard Row to Hoe
This laid-back winery is named after an entrepreneurial man who ran a row boat taxi service on Lake Clean in the 1930’s!
