This up-and-coming winery needs to be on your radar.
Nestled near the Columbia River in the beautiful and fertile Wenatchee Valley of Washington state, is the award-winning boutique winery, Chateau Faire Le Pont. Established in 2004, Chateau Faire Le Pont produces approximately 3000 bottles yearly. The winemaker, general manager and co-founder, Doug Brazil, a retired Navy Commander, is fulfilling “a dream come true”. During his tour of duty, he traveled the world and frequented world-renowned wineries. He feels that has given him his competitive edge when it comes to developing the wines of the chateau. His meticulous attention to detail and obsession with quality comes from a place of respect for the legacy of winemaking. As a result, Doug spends his days in the cellar using his senses as his barometer for winemaking decisions. Ultimately, always striving to make wines that represent their ultra-premium winery.
Chateau Faire Le Pont produces world class wines with grapes from the nearby Yakima Valley, Red Mountain, Horse Haven Hills, Mattawa and their own Wenatchee Valley. They work with premium growers to ensure they get only the very best grapes. Furthermore, they source by site and row and all fruit is hand-picked and sorted. They produce Chardonnay, Viognier, Riesling, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmeñere and Syrah.
Chateau Faire Le Pont is the pride of the Wenatchee Valley and has been chosen as the #1 winery in North Central Washington. The chateau acts, not only as a destination winery and tasting room, but also features a 4-star reviewed restaurant. It is the go-to gathering place in the valley for events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthday celebrations, and corporate events. In addition, the chateau offers events throughout the year, such as cooking classes, and jazz nights to name a few.
In 14 short years, Chateau Faire Le Pont has racked up (no pun intended) several prestigious awards.
