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.

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.

We think of enjoying wine at Tunnel Hill as a bit of a homecoming. A chance to settle down. Calm the mind. Quiet those feet. A chance to return to what is right before us: spectacular estate grown Syrah, Pinot Noir, Riesling. Immaculate grounds and historic architecture. Friendly faces, dog and kid friendly spaces. A chance to breathe. A return to the senses.
Wine at Tunnel Hill is at once simple and profound.
Come! Pay us a visit. You will enjoy yourself.
It is interesting to contemplate the complexity of wine. Soil, water, heat, cold, wind, leaves, shoots, canes, fruit, brix, acid, harvest, crush, fermentation, aging, oak, label, foil and cork all contribute to the flavor and body of wine. More than a drink, more than refreshment, it is an experience, a journey.
A well-built wine, like a pool, reflects life. A sip reveals the wonder of the process from youthful to aged.
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
We offer a wide range of white and red wines. All are hand crafted in small batches, made using sustainable wine making as well as farming techniques. Lots of elbow grease…but fun.
Quincy Tasting Room Hours: Fri-Mon 11-6 (Phone: 509-787-8108)
Wenatchee Tasting Room Hours: Mon-Thur 12-7, Fr & Sat 12-9, Sun 12-5 (Phone: 509-888-0809)

’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.

Mike got his meat counter up and running in mid-September 2010 and most of his meat and produce is locally grown. For instance, he’s got a deal with Chris Bailey of Bailey’s Farm Fresh Produce in Wenatchee, to bring in freshly picked produce to the market every morning. He also works with Sara Rolfs of Grinnin Meadows to supply fresh produce, eggs, teas, and jams. Scott and Ruth Parsons own the Healthy Gourmet Food & Lifestyle School and provide fresh produce and baked items, like bread and pizza crusts.
He’s also got a deal with the Kallstrom family in Quincy, who provide his store with fresh sweet corn. McKee said the Kallstrom’s corn is especially fresh, and the secret is that they stagger planting in the spring so they only have a few rows of corn ripening at the same time. That way, the corn the Kallstrom’s supply is always fresh no matter what time of the season
Mike’s Meat & Farmers Market provides a outlet for local fruit and produce. They work with local farmers to provide farm fresh fruit and produce daily.
