More about this Producer
Lake Chelan’s unique grape growing characteristics were recognized in June of 2009 when the US Government granted designation as an American Viticulture Area (“AVA”). The climate allows the production of exceptionally crisp white wines, and brighter, leaner, red wines that have their own character but are reminiscent of the wines of old Bordeaux and the Northern Rhone.
The Vin du Lac Estate is 34 acres of prime orchard land first farmed in the 1920’s. They also farm 10 acres of apples, and in 2002 we planted “Michaela’s Vineyard”, named after Vin du Lac Muse, Michaela Markusson. Approximately 25 tons of wine grapes are harvested from Michaela’s Vineyard each year.
Vin du Lac Winery is driven by desire to establish Lake Chelan as one of the recognized centers of ultra-premium wine production on the West Coast.
