Spring is here, and spring means farmers markets. It’s hard to beat the farmers markets you’ll find on the Olympic Peninsula. Last year, the Port Townsend Farmers Market was recognized as the best large Farmers Market in the state. Colorful produce lines the stalls, the smell of freshly-baked breads permeates the air, and music sets the […]

Bless the Trees That Bear Fruit

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Wine and cider depend upon healthy fruit. This is true whether they’re made in Washington State, France, or Australia. Without an abundance of healthy fruit, winemakers and cider makers have nothing. We know it, too, and we are eternally grateful for the bounty of Mother Nature. Finnriver Farm & Cidery is leaving nothing to chance. […]

Chocolate. Red Wine. A Divine Combination.

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Chocolate is divine. It is luxurious. It is decadent. It has been special since it was discovered, and with good reason.

Although today chocolate is relatively affordable, […]

Discover the Olympic Discovery Trail

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Tall volcanic peaks such as Mount Baker and Mount Rainier are snow-covered twelve months a year. The lush forests of the Hoh are green twelve months a year. There are ocean beaches and high plateaux.

Olympic Peninsula Harvest Winery Tour

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011
