We invite you to visit and enjoy our very small family owned winery tasting room. 99% of our annual production is sold out via our tasting room and wine club. While we do not sell food in our tasting room our neighbor next door does! Fromagio offers an excellent assortment of domestic and imported cheeses, olive oils and prepared meats. Enjoy with our wines over-looking the gorgeous Lake Chelan Valley! Look for our new releases! On an annual basis we offer our stellar red wine blends; TriUmph, Caris and Whistle Punk. Our Sabrina (a barrel fermented Gewurztraminer) startles those not familiar with this wine with its graceful presentation and down right food friendly style. Our tawny styled port wine Devil's Smoke Stack is hands down a crowd pleaser. Come and join us for an amazing tasting experience.

Our Story

Long considered by those in the know as one of our nations finest estates, C R Sandidge offers wines of exceptional quality for a very fair price! When discussing our red wines the focus is primarily on blends utilizing red Bordeaux or red Rhone varieties. We do offer a lovely dry - barrel fermented Gewurztraminer for those interested in an superb dinner wine easily matched with oriental or classic French cuisine. Made using time honored German Icewine or raisined berry techniques, our KISS is dessert in a glass.

C R Sandidge is happy to announce two new styles of wines for your enjoyment. In November of 2013, we released our first tawny styled port wine made from WA state Petite Syrah & Syrah and Lake Chelan AVA brandy! In the fall of 2015 we will be releasing our bottle fermented sparkling wine crafted from Lake Chelan AVA Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

SPARKLING WINE!! Starting with the 2012 vintage, C R Sandidge is making sparkling wines utilizing the traditional "methode champagnoise" (bottle fermented) method. Fruit was harvested from select Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards located in the pristine Lake Chelan AVA. We will age the wine a minimum of 20 months on tirage. Expect excellence with this wine as you have come to with all of our other wines!! Enjoy and may God bless you and yours!
