Harvest Winery Tour & Scarecrow Contest
November 8 and 9, 2014
11 a.m. - 5 p.m
Sip and savor the flavors of fall, enjoy seasonal activities and marvel at nature’s vibrant palate during the Olympic Peninsula Wineries’ Harvest Wine Tour, November 8 and 9, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The eight artisan wineries are located in the Peninsula towns of Chimacum, Nordland, Port Townsend, Sequim and Port Angeles. “Fall is spectacular on the Olympic Peninsula,” says Wineries Association President Vicki Corson. “The Harvest Tour Weekend is a great opportunity to get away, taste some fantastic new wines and discover delicious new pairings for your holiday table.” Visitors can take a photo with their favorite of the “wine scarecrows” that greet them at each venue, enjoy an evening of jazz music and more!
Ticket and glass package entitles you to a special commemorative wine glass, complimentary wine tasting at all eight OPW Wineries. Tickets are available online for $25 plus service fees (until 11/7/14 at noon). Any remaining tickets will be sold for $30 at participating wineries during the Harvest Tour. This event does not take place at one location. You travel from winery to winery, visiting the ones you are interested in exploring. Tickets are not required to attend this event. A $5.00 wine tasting fee will be charged at each winery for non-ticketed visitors. You must be 21 or over to purchase tickets and/or participate in wine tasting. All ticket sales are non-refundable.

This year we are putting a fun twist on our annual Scarecrow Contest. Visitors are invited to take photos with the “wine scarecrows” that greet them at each venue. Like us on Facebook and submit your best scarecrow photo from the wine tour. We will select our favorite photo to feature on the Olympic Peninsula Wineries website and invite the winner and a guest to the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour in February 2015.
The Olympic Peninsula Wineries encourage responsible wine touring and recommend that you have a designated driver in your group.
Participants who have their ticket stamped at all eight of our wineries will be entered into a drawing for an elegant wine themed gift basket. The gift basket winner along with a second and third place winner will receive two tickets to the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour in February.
Please Help Us With Our Goal Of Responsible Wine Service...
- Be prepared to show your photo I.D. at each winery, you must be 21 to participate in wine tasting
- It is ILLEGAL in Washington State for a winery to continue to serve or sell wine to any guest who appears intoxicated, even if they have a limo or designated driver
- Be aware of those around you as you wait at the tasting bar for your sample, make room for others to enjoy the experience as well
- We recommend limiting the number of wines you sample at each winery
- We encourage you to take advantage of dump buckets provided for excess wine
Due to the limited facilities at our small wineries, groups of more than 15 cannot be accommodated during event weekends. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a special group tour for another time.
