You could spend hours licking your chops in front of the mouthwatering fresh fish and produce at the Pike Place Market, but when it comes to gustatory goodies, you know there's more to Washington than just the Seattle waterfront. Get a taste of the fare east of the mountains—and feast your eyes on the gorgeous fall foliage while you're at it—with this delectable Adventure: a fall winery tour around Wenatchee and Leavenworth, with gourmet food pairings and round-trip transportation aboard a luxury coach.
We'll start by heading to one of two Seattle check-in points (Bellevue or downtown), where our gang of gourmands will escort us aboard a luxury coach for the scenic drive over the Cascade Mountains. The first stop on our tasty tour: Chateau Faire Le Pont Winery, where we'll get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how a small-scale winery operates (if we're lucky, we'll catch the legendary "crush" that starts the wine-making process). After the tour, we'll head down to Chateau Faire Le Pont's barrel room and delight our taste buds with a tasting of five wines, followed by a four-course lunch with additional wine pairings (think sweet potato-andouille ravioli; autumn salad; filet mignon with chocolate-Cabernet reduction; and chocolate truffles) and some downtime to savor our surroundings and take advantage of exclusive wine discounts.
From there, we'll make our way to Silvara Vineyards atop a hill overlooking the Wenatchee River, where we'll taste up to seven additional wines as Gary Seidler (the winery's esteemed owner) tells us the vineyard's story. After the tasting, we'll get a chance to relax, bask in the warmth of the winery's outdoor fireplaces, and purchase additional wine (LivingSocial guests will receive exclusive bottle and case discounts at each winery). We'll end our tour with a leisurely hour in Leavenworth—a village with a distinct Bavarian flavor—browsing its quaint shops, tasting rooms, and restaurants, before boarding the coach back to the city. If you're hungry for another side of the Washington food and wine experience, this Adventure promises to give you more than your fill.
