The Best Wineries to Tour Near Sequim

The wineries on the Olympic Peninsula are all family-owned, and are as unique and distinctive as you’d expect from their locations.  Moving from Seattle west, the first winery you’ll encounter is Marrowstone Vineyards on beautiful Marrowstone Island near Port Townsend.  Here, you’ll find delicious wines as well as a great selection of local art in their upstairs gallery.  While here, you should also stop for a walk at beautiful Fort Flagler, located at the tip of Marrowstone Island.  In nearby Port Townsend, you’ll find three wineries and other great tasting rooms to choose from. They are: Alpenfire Cider, FairWinds Winery, where you’ll find some interesting and non-mainstream Wineries and Wine Tasting on the Olympic Peninsulavarietals, and Lullaby Winery.  Before heading back towards Sequim, you won’t want to miss a stop at popular FinnRiver Farm & Cidery in Chimicum.

Sequim itself is home to the Wind Rose Cellars, which features Italian style wines from Washington, and is conveniently located downtown, just minutes from the Dungeness Bay Cottages. In between Sequim and Port Angeles, you’ll find Olympic Cellars, which was one of the first 15 wineries in Washington State, and the first on the Olympic Peninsula.  Not only does this winery have a legacy worth exploring and wines worth sampling, but it’s located in a 100+ year old barn that is just as fascinating as the winery itself.  Continue west into Port Angeles, and you’ll find the final two wineries, Harbinger Winery and Comaraderie Cellars.  Harbinger winery has been an award-winning winery in the past, is served in many local bars and restaurants, and remains popular on the Olympic Peninsula.
