All Experience & No Stress Wine Tours
Traveling to the world’s premier destinations for wine and the culinary arts is one of life’s greatest joys. Thankfully, we don’t have to travel far to experience world class wines.
North Central Washington is quickly earning a reputation as one of the premier destinations for wine in the world. What our area has lacked is an educated guide to navigate the region’s best wines. Our owner and guide, Aaron Shepard, an avid food and wine traveler, is also a trained Sommelier under the Courts of Master Sommeliers. His love and knowledge of food and wine provides you with a unique experience unlike anything offered in the area.
Let NCW Wine Tours be your guide to one of the most exciting areas for wine in Washington.
Whether you are local or visiting from outside the area, this is a great tour for you! NCW Wine Tours do a beautiful job providing a unique experience of wine tasting. Unlike other wine tours I have taken, Aaron is hands on and involved in every tasting experience to further your knowledge in wines and the history of the area. During the tour you will get to taste some of the best wines in the area and will be provided a substantial cheese plate that pairs well with all of them! The bus is comfortable and clean! Great for large groups to individuals.
I have been on many wine tours and they all blend in together - same boilerplate routine that leaves you confused about what exactly it is you paid for. NCW Wine Tours is completely set apart from the rest in our region. It is truly a curated, crafted experience designed to be a wonderful mix of fun, great wines, and education about the complexity of the wine making industry. I walked away with a deeper level of appreciation and respect for the art form that is the wine making process! Each winery we visited our group felt like we were receiving the VIP treatment; everything was carefully set up and prepared for our arrival. Aaron and his team are on a different level when it comes to professionalism and gave our group an experience we will never forget. Can’t wait for my next tour!!

We had a wonderful experience touring of some of the premier wineries that The Lake Chelan area has to offer. Our tour guide and Sommelier Aaron offered great insights into evaluating the complex flavors of all different kinds of wine. He helped us understand how different types of wine pairs with different types of food. This was an experience way above your average wine tasting tour. Well done, Aaron, thanks for the great tour!!

What a fun and educational day with Aaron on NCW wine tours. Aaron provided a well-rounded tour with information about growing, harvesting, tasting, food pairing, history of Chelan, and lots more. Lots of information but also time for enjoying the beautiful Chelan Valley and its wineries. Felding Hills and Alta rolled out the red carpet for our group. We enjoyed delicious charcuterie boards from the Cheese Monger. I’d highly recommend this experience for everyone who is interested in learning more about wine and tasting at some of Chelan’s finest wineries.
