10 years ago Lake Chelan was officially designated as an American Viticulture Area (AVA). This designation is granted by the Federal government, and signifies an area with unique climate, soil and physical features that distinguish it from surrounding areas.
Chelan sits at the base of the North Cascades, overlooking some of the most jaw dropping landscapes in the PNW; and those views are often served up with a tasty glass of the best wine in the region. When it comes to choosing your wedding destination, what more could you ask for? Beautiful views – check. Delicious wine -check. Somewhere far enough away your husband’s frat douche friends won’t attend -no guarantees. Sunny skies and expansive grape vines create the perfect backdrop for a stunning outdoor wedding, so if you’re thinking about reciting your nuptials in the valley, check out this list of kickass vendors from our picture perfect Chelan wedding!
