About Vibe Cellars - Beautiful Lake Chelan Winery
Our Story: From Our Family to Yours ...
Vibe Cellar's winemaking history started long ago in the Piedmont Region of Northern Italy near the Italian/French border.
Our roots drive our love for "Italian Style" Varietals and French "Bordeaux Style" Reds and their blends. Our passion is to produce fine Washington wines and provide excellent value to our Customers. Our family has made wines for generations with the simple goal of creating wines that bring the family and our friends together. Here at Vibe Cellars, we also want to create wonderful long-lasting relationships, good feelings, and positive experiences between our Customers and our Team. The Winery is located in beautiful Lake Chelan, WA and we are working to open a Tasting Room there as well. Sign-up for our Newsletter on the Home Page for the latest news, events, and announcements.
Following four or more generations of winemaking, plus lots of lessons learned, WSU Enology Certificates, and winery apprenticeships ... we felt it was time to share our experience and love for the art of wine with you.

About Our Vineyard Sources and their AVAs
Cabernet Sauvignon - We source our Cabernet Sauvignon from two Vineyards. Primarily we use River Ridge Vineyard located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA which is renowned for outstanding Cabs. The Vineyard is located just at the edge of the AVA overlooking the Columbia River. The river helps modulate Vineyard temperatures in the evenings extending the growing season. Our second source of Cab is from Tapteil Vineyard located in the Red Mountain AVA. In our opinion, one of the BEST Cab sources in Washington State.
Sangiovese - We believe Chandler Reach Vineyards Sangiovese is outstanding. The Vineyards are located in Benton City, which is in the Yakima Valley AVA just across the river from the Red Mountain AVA. The Vineyards are planted with the Sangiovese Grosso Clone; which produces slightly plumper, richer berries and is solely used in the production of Italian Brunellos. Given Sangiovese can be a late harvest varietal, the areas sunlight and heat profiles make Chandler Reach Vineyards an ideal source.
Syrah - We source our Syrah from Stillwater Creek Vineyard in the Royal Slope AVA located on a steep, south-facing rise on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills. We find they consistently produce outstanding Syrahs from multiple Syrah Clones grown in their Vineyard.
Malbec - We currently source our Malbec from the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. We are seeking additional sources in the Wahluke Slope AVA as we have found this AVA capable of producing some of the most refined Malbec in Washington State.
Others in development - we are working to source fruit from the Lake Chelan, Wahluke Slope, Candy Mountain, Red Mountain, Ancient Lakes, and Walla Walla AVAs as well.
