The Olympic Peninsula Wineries Trail is made up of a group of amazing vineyards (and even some cideries). With eight spots in total, this isn’t the largest wine trail you’ll experience, but here near Sequim it’s quality over quantity. These Olympic Peninsula Wineries are all locally-owned by hard working wine makers and farmers. More than likely on any wine tasting tour you’ll meet the owners and wine makers as they pour you a glass and they always welcome visitors with open arms.
Many of these Olympic Peninsula Wineries use grapes grown on the eastern side of Washington State, due to the dryer climate and more ideal growing conditions. But that’s not to say that there aren’t successful vineyards on this side of the Cascades. That’s one of the best parts of visiting these Olympic Peninsula Wineries, you’ll get to taste through an amazing line up of locally grown and eastern grown varietals.
