Wine, cider tour set for Veterans Day weekend

Nine peninsula businesses are inviting locals and visitors alike to another “spirited” annual road trip over Veterans’ Day weekend.

The Olympic Peninsula Harvest Wine & Cider Tour is set for 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Nov. 9 and 10. Nine boutique wineries and cideries in Sequim, Port Angeles and Jefferson County pair seasonal releases with an array of sweet and savory foods inspired by locally harvested ingredients — from turkey-pumpkin chili to curried butternut squash bisque with stuffed mushrooms, and sliced pear with blue cheese and wine-infused honey to apple-chevre tarts.

Tour tickets are available for $40 online or $45 at the door of each winery. A commemorative wine glass, wine tasting and food pairings are included in the ticket price. Visitors without tour tickets will be charged a $10 tasting fee at each venue.

See for more information or to buy tickets.

• Wind Rose Cellars, Sequim

• Camaraderie Cellars, Port Angeles

• Harbinger Winery, Port Angeles

• Olympic Cellars, Port Angeles

• Eaglemount Wine & Cider, Port Townsend
