Treasure Hunt in Wine Country

Updated: Jul 10

Perhaps you've noticed the decor, statues, and symbols around the wineries in the Heart of Washington Wine Country. If not, this weekend is a great time to slow down to find some hidden treasures at the wineries. Ten wineries have selected "treasures" on their properties that tie closely to their winery, winemaking, or vineyard practices. Check out their clues below and see if you can find the treasures this Second Saturday, July 11 for a chance to win a SWAG Bag. Most of the treasures can be found from the comfort of your car. If you are interested in enjoying wine at the winery, please contact the winery to schedule an appointment. Or take a look around as you enjoy the contactless curbside wine pick up. Also on the mountain, you'll find Ninja Bistro at Fidelitas.
