We are enjoying a glass of wine on this warm, sunny afternoon, “Working Girl White”. Never thought an Olympic Peninsula wine would win over our eastern Washington favorites. But, the Olympic Cellars Winery has our heart and satisfied our taste buds. Only a few miles from our Sequim home base, the winery is owned and operated by three feisty women, better known as the Working Girls (Molly, Lisa and Kathy). We met Molly and Lisa and they convinced us to join the wine club. We receive a 20% discount off prices every time we purchase wine. We commit to 12 bottles a year. Oh, that will not be a problem.
Starting in July the winery has a concert every Saturday evening at 7 p.m. with great music and wine. Local seafood chowder and salads are available at each concert provided by Mystery Bay Seafood . A favorite is Crème Tangerine; a Beatles knock-off band.
Housed in a 121 year-old historic barn, a 100+ year old hand-crafted tasting bar, farm land that they have preserved with a small vineyard and a 100 year old bell that rings in the harvest. Time and time again we run into such historic locations and determined entrepreneurs on the Peninsula.
