Wine & Spirits

Whatcom County wines range from traditional varieties featuring Yakima Valley grapes to very unique blends and ingredients, including locally-grown raspberries and hazelnuts. The wineries are open year-round for tastings and tours.  Distilleries include an apple orchard making its own vodka, and an urban moonshine maker. Great bars and happy hours are also plentiful.

Teresa’s Beer, Wine and Spirits Insider Blog features fun tips on local beverages, venues and related events.
