If you like wines you’re going to love Chelan. There are over 30 Lake Chelan wineries, including quite a few that are just minutes from Kelly’s Resort, our family-owned, lakeside resort.
You’d think the natural beauty of Lake Chelan would be enough but no, we’re also an official American Viticulture Area (AVA). That means the soil, elevation, and other factors are perfect for growing wine grapes.
You don’t take our word for it, however. Come by and sample the region’s bounty for yourself at the Lake Chelan’s numerous tasting rooms and wineries! You about can’t throw a rock without hitting an award-winning winery in Chelan and nothing adds richness to a wine like tasting it in situ.
Kelly’s Resort, located along Lake Chelan’s southern shore, is within reasonable distance of all Lake Chelan wineries. That being said, some are closer than others, and we are understandably partial to our most immediate neighbors.
