The website,, has reported that some of Washington State’s wineries also have amazing restaurants and have listed their top 10 on Twitter.

No. 1 is Sorrento’s Ristorante at Tsillan Cellars;
No. 4 is 18 Brix at Karma Vineyards;
No. 5 is Vin du Lac Winery; and
No. 9 is the BBQ a Lake Chelan Winery

Tsillan Cellars Vineyard - Lake Chelan
Tsillan Cellar’s Sorrento’s Ristorante was named the best winery restaurant in the State.

You can find out the rest in Washington by visiting their website along with plenty of other delightful attractions, dining, food, nature and other things to see and do here.

18 Brix at Karma Vineyards garnered the No. 4 position.

The four restaurants they have selected in the Lake Chelan Valley are a great representation of what is being offered as local dining options. I have had the pleasure of eating at all four and can say without reservation that, while not inexpensive, the food is worth the price you pay.

Vin do Lac was named the No. 5 best winery restaurant in the State.

Sorrento’s has some of the best prime rib I’ve ever had. 18 Brix serves up incredibly delicious lunches with outdoor seating. Larry at Vin du Lac has turned his bistro into a wonderful “farm to table” restaurant and is open for both lunch and dinner. The BBQ at Lake Chelan Winery has been noted for some of the best barbeque ribs this side of Texas.

Lake Chelan Winery’s BBQ settled in at No. 9 best in the State. It is only open during the late Spring through Fall.

All offer great wines to pair with your choice on the menus.

Pretty incredible that four of the 10 best would be located in the Lake Chelan Valley.

Congratulations to each bistro, restaurant and winery.
