If Pepsi goes with a hamburger and a light microwbrew with a hot dog, what wine goes with a poached dill salmon, geoduck fillet or a steaming bowl of clam chowder? The answer of course is a Washington State wine! And to help one make the correct selection, OysterFest regularly organizes a wine-tasting hall featuring Washington wines exclusively.

Each year, nearly twenty wineries showcase the vintages that have helped them make their mark in the wine world.  Whether you prefer a robust red, tantalizing white, or like some sweeter options, you’ll find it here.

Friends gather to spend hours visiting and sampling wines. Some just stop in for a few tastes on their way to one of the other many OysterFest venues. No matter your plan, stop by and experience winetasting.

Buy your souvenier glass for just $5 and wine tasting tickets for just $1 each.  Each taste of wine is two to four tickets, depending on the wine.  Tickets may be purchased and redeemed at any of the winery tables for tastes.

Prosser Vineyard & Winery

Crafted by hand, Prosser Vineyard and Winery continue traditions by making wine the old fashioned way…by hand. Only small adjustments were needed to achieve the award-winning methods originally tried more than a decade ago. The vine is maintained by hand throughout the year and harvested at the peak of perfection to keep levels and flavors just right. Grapes are carefully tended, destemmed and crushed in small batches before being sent to the barrel to rest and perfect. The wine is then bottled onsite and rest again before distribution and enjoyment.

Walter Dacon

Lloyd and Ann began home winemaking in 2000. They had enjoyed experimenting with different wines for many years and wanted to give their own ideas a try. Their first attempts turned out so well that their friends began encouraging them to think in the direction of starting their own winery. Shortly after they made the leap and begin taking serious winemaking classes at UC Davis. For the next few years they studied everything they could about making wines and opening a winery. In 2003 the State of WA and the Federal Government granted the Anderson’s a permit to open Walter Dacon Wines. Their first crush in the fall of 03, with friends and family gathered around, was the beginning celebration of their first vintages. Their inaugural wines were put in the barrels by November and while they aged, work began on the tasting room. By May of 2005, the tasting room was open and all of the 2003 vintages made their debut. It was then that C’est Syrah Belle, C’est Syrah Beaux and C’est Syrah Magnifique, had their grand entrance onto the Washington wine scene. By the next year Wine Spectator had rated their Belle 89 pts, the Beaux 88 pts and their Magnifique received an amazing 91 pts, the winery was off and running.

The tasting room was a hit from the beginning, with the meticulously restored, vintage circulation desk from the Fremont Library in Seattle Wa, circa 1917, to the expertly hand crafted art that hangs above the tasting bar. The portrait of Lloyd’s grandfather, Walter Dacon hangs proudly over the entire winery.

Today guests, volunteers and winetasters from all over the world come to Walter Dacon to “Experience the Rhone”, as they drive through the one-of-a-kind wrought iron gate created by local and national artist Nancy Moore, the guests at Walter Dacon feel that they have arrived at one of the Northwest’s most charming boutique wineries.

When you decide to visit the majestic Olympic Peninsula, stopping by Walter Dacon is a “must destination”. Close to the beautiful shores of Hood Canal (the only fiord in the lower 48) and minutes away from hiking, kayaking and 5 star accommodations, Walter Dacon and it’s fabulous wines and tasting room, create a true wine lovers experience.
