’37 Cellars Winery came about when Chuck and I (Frank), two brother-in-laws, decided that we wanted to make our own ultra-premium, hand-crafted wine so that we could enjoy more of it, and share it with friends. After a couple of years of doing this, our passion and desire to make more wine and make it available to other people, led to the formation of a new Washington State winery called ’37 Cellars. This has something to do with guitars, just sayin’. Our wines can be tasted at The Chamber Tasting Room in downtown Wenatchee located at 1 S Wenatchee Avenue. 509.662 2116.

Martin-Scott Winery, located in East Wenatchee, Washington, is a marriage of our best efforts and assets. We feature small quantities of handcrafted wines. The fruit comes from our home vineyard in East Wenatchee, high on a bluff, south-facing, above the Columbia River and from grapes grown in the prime grape growing region of the Columbia Valley in South Central Washington State near Mattawa. The Olympic and Cascade Mountains provide a barrier to coastal precipitation leaving an average rainfall of 8 inches per year. With this dry, desert condition, plant vigor, canopy and fruit quality can be successfully controlled. Sudden Falls beckon the plants into dormancy and winter cold inhibits pests, thus encouraging integrated pest management and modest use of chemicals.
Tasting Room Hours are Friday, Saturday, 12-5pm, Sunday 12-4pm
As the sun pushes back the clouds, the adventure begins at Mission Ridge, in the heart of Washington State where the jagged peaks of the Cascade Range meet the high rugged desert of Eastern Washington. Operating on 2,000 acres and offering 2,250 vertical feet and the highest base area in the state the parking lot is a short 12 miles drive south of Wenatchee. A volcanic past has created a ridge where - peaks shimmer on one side and the Columbia River rolls majestically through Eastern Washington on the other. But don’t let the view distract you; Mission Ridge has over 2000 acres to explore. Carve tree lined groomers, float through wide-open bowls, wiggle through glades, or scream down narrow chutes. Experience the difference – the sunshine, the powder, the food and the fun – the memories last a lifetime.

What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture programs (CSA’s) were originally developed to support a local farm by paying for produce in advance in the early spring when the farmer needs the “seed money”. Anyone who had paid in advance would share in the harvest all season as well as sharing the risk of bad weather, over supply, or crop failure with the farmer. The Rhubarb Market CSA is considered a cooperative CSA. This type of CSA minimizes the risks by gathering produce from several local farms. This increases the variety and assures that there will be plenty of produce each week throughout the season. A cooperative CSA program helps support more than one local farm while providing a greater variety of fresh fruits and vegetables for you!
The Rhubarb Market CSA will provide you with 22 weeks of high quality vegetables, fruits, and handmade food items from a number of small growers and produces in Central Washington.
You can be assured that what you are getting is local, sustainable, and that you are helping strengthen and grow the regional food system of North Central Washington.

The foothills to the west of Wenatchee are a natural treasure, ideal for wildlife viewing and recreation.Chelan~Douglas Land Trust is leading a strong effort to make sure that visitors and local people can enjoy the Wenatchee Foothills far into the future. The focal point of this effort is the Wenatchee Foothills Trail, a path that would link Saddlerock, Castle Rock, and the Sage Hills Trails. Informal trails already exist in these areas, but we are working to develop a formal trail with convenient and attractive parking areas. In recent years, development has threatened or eliminated access to areas in the foothills that local people have enjoyed for decades. We are fortunate to have large areas of public land in the foothills and private landowners who are wiling to let people cross their land. It would be shortsighted to not maintain access to these areas for future generations.
A new Foothills Trail map is now available. Contact the Land Trust at (509) 667-9708 for a full size 11″ x 17″ map, or click here to download a smaller version of the Foothills Trail map.
