This is a free tasting. The owners were the wine stewards today; helpful and engaging. While we like sweet wines, I went through the tasting and found several of them quite nice and would pair well with food. Seems like a nice place to come in the summer with outdoor seating and activities; check the website. Open Wed-Sun; noon to... More

The majority of the wines they produce are Syrahs, which are actually pretty good. Run about $40 a bottle. The lady running the counter was a bit excessive with the chatter, however, which probably wouldn't have been as noticeable had the pours been a little more generous. Probably the smallest tastes we've had.

We stopped at the winery about 30 minutes before they opened. We decided to feed our 2 pugs and just relax until they were opened. The owner, Ann, saw us and decided to open early for us! She was very knowledgeable about the wines and we enjoyed her company while tasting some great wines. We ended up buying a case... More

What a nice visit. The winemaker greets you in the tasting room and immediately began lining up glasses for us to taste. Heavy on the pours - "What the heck...i make the stuff!" A nice stop on the way back from the Hood River Canal area back to Olympia. Squeeze it in , you'll love it.

This winery makes great wines from grapes it sources from the Columbia River valley. All of their wines are excellent and their syrahs are especially noteworthy. Highly recommend you stop if you are travelling through the area. The owners are great hosts.

Stopped in on a random drive down to the Oregon Coast. The lady of the winery was a lovely soul and entertained us with stories of how they began and the awards they have won. The wine was great, although somewhat young, but enough choices to satisfy everyone pallet. Some interesting vintages and blends. We purchased a red but enjoyed... More

Walter Dacon Winery makes fabulous wine. For years they've been known for their Rhone-style offerings and have recently added 2 Spanish-style blends, both excellent. Wednesday - Sunday tastings are free in the cozy tasting room. The winery has regularly scheduled events throughout the year. Live music, wonderful food, and great wine- bring your friends to relax and enjoy yourselves. The... More
