Chateau Faire La Pont Winery
Paula Frederick



Chateau Faire Le Pont is a state-of-the-art winery located in the beautiful Wenatchee Valley. They are situated right off Confluence State Park where 11 miles of trail runs on the western and eastern shores of the Columbia River. Bursting with 300 days of sunshine a year, majestic mountains and beautiful rivers and lakes, Wenatchee Valley is a recreational paradise.


Chateau Faire Le Pont produces world class, ultra-premium wines from locally grown grapes. Ultimate production will level off between 6,000 and 7,000 cases per year. The grapes come from the Yakima Valley, Alderdale and Mattawa, where owners Doug and Debe' Brazil work hand-in-hand with premium growers. They source by site and row. All fruit is hand picked and sorted. The gentlest possible process is used to ensure maximum extraction in the production of their wines. Daily tours are available. They will even take you into the barrel room for barrel tastings!


The beautifully renovated 1920's brick warehouse was formerly used for staging fruit to be loaded onto trains. The Brazils have created an elegant, multi-use space while maintaining the strength and character consistent with an old brick warehouse. Expansive windows frame a panorama of mountain views. The large outdoor decks and Gazebo are perfect for those beautiful summer days. The vineyard lines the entrance to the winery. It is an educational vineyard showcasing different varieties of grapes. Featued is an "adopt-a-vine" program, which includes a hands-on approach to wine making that ranges from learning how to prune the vines to harvesting and crushing the grapes, to producing and bottling wine.


Chateau Faire Le Pont operates as a full tasting room winery with all popular varietals represented. The facility is multi-functional to accommodate numerous events including: weddings, winemaker dinners, business meetings, guest-chef dinners, etc.



The mural seen here, by local artist Sarah Morgan, depicts the expansion of agriculture in the Wenatchee valley to include grapes in conjunction with the existing cherries, apples and pears.
