Day Trip from Seattle: Wine Tour on the Olympic Peninsula

Are you visiting Seattle soon? Do yourself a favor and spend a day on the stunningly beautiful Olympic Peninsula, a scenic ferry ride and one hour drive from downtown Seattle.

A great way to see the peninsula and view the scenery is by taking a wine tour. We have eight member wineries on the peninsula. You can see them all during one full day of touring the Peninsula! Note: Make sure to check winery listings for when you can stop by or make an appointment for a tasting!

First Stop: FinnRiver Farm and Cidery in Chimacum

Once you’ve crossed the Hood Canal Bridge, head about 10 miles further until you see Center-Sr 104 loop and take a right. Take an immediate right into Center Rd. Four miles later, turn on Country Meadow Rd. About a quarter mile down, take a right on Barn Swallow Rd. This brings you to Finnriver Farm and Cidery, at 62 Barn Swallow Road in Chimacum.

Second Stop: FairWinds Winery in Port Townsend

This is a fun route through the back roads to the adorable town of Port Townsend.

Eaglemount Wine and Cider in Port Townsend

Head south on Barn Swallow Rd., back the way you came in. Take a left on Country Meadow Rd and then take a right to get back on Center Rd. Head about two and a half miles and take a left on Rhody Dr. Three miles later continue onto Airport Cutoff Rd. This will bring you to Rte. 20 E. Drive about two miles down and take a left on S. Jacob Miller Rd. Two more miles and take a right on Hastings Ave West. FairWinds Winery will be on the left, at 1984 Hastings Ave W.

Third Stop: Eaglemount Winery in Port Townsend

If you leave Seattle around 9 a.m. it will probably be about lunch time when you leave FairWinds. Head into Port Townsend to get a bite before getting back on the road.

Get back on Rte. 20 heading West. Six miles down, take a left on Eaglemount Rd. Eaglemount Wine and Cider will be about two miles down, at 2530 Eaglemount Rd. Cider is a nice, light way to start a day of tastings!
