Downtown’s “West Side” Wineries

This area of warehouses and empty brick buildings is in transition with wineries, shops and restaurants that even locals haven’t discovered yet. Start at Robert Karl Cellars, rated by Wine and Spirits Magazine’s “Top 100 Wineries” internationally, their winery is located in an old horse-drawn fire carriage house. Tour the production area and barrel room as you taste their hand-crafted wines. Next, to Bridge Press Cellars, a small family owned winery specializing in hand crafted small volume Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wines. Relax on their couches in this large, inviting tasting room. Last stop is Overbluff Cellars, devoted to crafting world class wines from the best vineyards in Washington State. They are located in the unique Washington Cracker Building, built in 1891 where, yes, crackers, cookies and biscuits were made.

Time: 3 ½ hours.

Options: Add lunch at Bridge Press Cellars with their famous pita bread sandwiches. Or, end with dinner at the incredible Inland Northwest Kitchen with James Baird finalist Chef Jeremy Hanson, also located in the Washington Cracker Building.
