The Tasting Room
In the 1920's the O’Neal family established the apple orchards on the beautiful site overlooking Lake Chelan that now comprises the Vin du Lac Estate Property. The O’Neals also built the farmhouse that today serves as Vin du Lac's Tasting Room. When the Winery was founded in 2002, the old farmstead was updated to provide the feel of a French Country Bistro. The Lehmbecker men - Lehm, Larry, and brother Don, did the remodeling and built the original Patio and Pergola where tastings are still done al fresco most months of the year. In 2006, the patio was expanded to create more seating space for the growing number of customers who come to experience the wine life at Vin du Lac. In 2010, the indoor Bistro has expanded to accommodate winter dinner and wine tastings.
Vin du Lac has never just been about quick visits for wine tasting, however. Instead, we've always offered an environment and atmosphere that makes you slow down and immerse yourself in the lifestyle that defines Lake Chelan and Vin du Lac. Besides daily tasting, we have a great bistro, live outdoor concerts every Saturday during summer and fall, and jazz nights on Saturdays in the Winter and Spring.
We're a family-run winery, and so Vin du Lac is a place you bring family and friends to relax and enjoy sunny days, great wine, and gorgeous views of Lake Chelan. We're kid-friendly, dog friendly, lover friendly, and yes, even bachelorette party friendly! You'll want to buy a glass or bottle of wine, sit back on the patio or lawn, and get to know us. There's a lot of character here - and a bunch of characters too! Come hang out for a while, and in no time you'll be a Vin du Lac regular and character too!

We love food and wine. When Vin du Lac started, we aimed to provide guests with the food and wine experience. Inspiration was taken by regular trips to Napa, Paris, Provence, and dining al fresco - either street-side or in the countryside - with a good bottle of country wine, was another experience we wanted to capture.
Great food, hearty wine, surrounded by vineyard and orchard, with views through the trees of the lake.
