Olympic Peninsula tour pairs wine with hearty food

Vote for your favorite scarecrow.
Walk in the fields.
Eat some pumpkin soup.
Tell your war story.
B.Y.O.G.
Bring Your Own Glass.
You can come for the day or spend Veterans Day weekend at the Olympic Peninsula Wineries Harvest Wine Tour.
The self-guided tour on Nov. 9, 10 and 11 covers eight artisan wineries in Chimacum, Port Townsend, Sequim and Port Angeles.
It pairs wine releases with local cuisine such as pumpkin soup, hearty stews and caramel apple hand-pies. Adding to the fun is music, a marketplace and a chance to vote on a wine scarecrow at each venue.
On Veterans Day at Port Townsend's FairWinds Winery, veterans can tell their story on camera. Stories will be posted on the winery website.
Other wineries on the tour are Wind Rose Cellars, Harbinger Winery, Olympic Cellars, Finnriver Farm & Cidery, Eaglemount Wine & Cider, Camaraderie Cellars and Black Diamond Winery.
Wine glasses will be provided, but bring your own if you have a favorite to use and show off.
Tickets for the tour are $30. Independently, each winery charges a $5 tasting fee. Children are permitted in the tasting rooms.
The three-day tour event is 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
For more information, call 800-785-5495 or visit www.olympicpeninsulawineries.org.
