I love, love, love your wines. Hubby and I come out to PA a couple of times a year and we make a stop all the time to restock....and I always seem to find something unique in the little 'gift' shop too! :-)
Greetings, I LOVE your website, philosophy and energy!
Join us all weekend for some Flip Flop Fun!
June 21-23, 2013
- Flip Flop In for complimentary tasting
- Father’s… you get complimentary tasting even without flip flops… but both, hmmmm!!!
- Make the Sun God really happy with your best summer look…Sun Hats, Sun Glasses & Flip Flops (We’re camera ready!)
- We’ll have tasty treats to snack on
- Our very popular Sangria is back, this year made with our Dungeness Red Lemberger.
We have two fabulous new releases:
2012 Madeleine Angevine
This stunning wine represents the 100 days of sunshine the Dungeness Valley was blessed with in the summer of 2012. Grown within 10 miles of our winery, dry with a lovely minerality and acidity; a perfect pairing with local seafood. You will enjoy the heady floral bouquet, citrus notes and clean finish. We were only able to make 100 cases. It will be sold out by September.
2012 Dungeness White Riesling
We’ve repackaged the Dungeness White into a beautiful, cobalt blue bottle. The wine itself has changed a little also, because we added some grapes from a new vineyard, Red Willow. This new Dungeness White has about the same residual sugar as previous years, but it is so spicy and complex that the flavor, not the sweetness command attention. It’s pale yellow in color with a nose of spiced pear. In the mouth it is like drinking a fruit basket of peach, apricot, tangerine and apple with a cotton candy finish.
Flip flops and a winery?…
maybe not the most natural connection but to the Working Girls it signifies something pretty special… summer, warmth and sunshine! We shout…Down with fleece!!!
Add to that Father’s Day on June 16 and Summer Solstice on June 21 and we have a triple reason to celebrate.
Just flip flop on in to Olympic Cellars June 21-23 and the wine tasting is on us.
Complimentary tastes of our New Releases for everyone
Bring Dad to the winery “in flip flops”, and he get’s a special gift.

Flip-Flop Wine Special Discounts All Weekend
Dungeness Sangria that is truly summer sunshine in a glass, perfect with those summer tunes playing out on our patio.
Imagine thousands of people (or maybe just Olympic Cellars’ customer list) flip-flopping away on Saturday. The thought just makes you smile. The impetus behind this brainchild? Flip-Flops, those fun, colorful, rubber sandals, are in my mind synonymous with summer.
“Now, we’re talking true flip-flops, not Birkenstocks or any type of open-toed shoe that entices people in the Northwest to wear socks. Though the Pacific Northwest introduced the concept of ‘socks and sandals,’ our philosophy is that if enough people wear real flip-flops on National Flip-Flop Day, the sun just has to follow!”!
On a more serious note, we all know that many Americans are suffering in this slow economy, and that there is a lot of “bad stuff” happening in our world over which we have no control.
We all help where we can but uncertainty can leave you anxious when thinking about the future. Wearing Flip-Flops for one day is not going to solve the issues facing our world and I’m not trying to make light of them. But, we all have the power to make a difference within our own sphere of influence.
So take the time to reach out to those dearest to you… celebrate life and National Flip-Flop Day!

As a young songwriter LeRoy wrote grammy winning songs for some very major artists,
most notably Elton John. LeRoy's 6th album "Rock N Soul" was just released in March 2013 and is certainly his most anticipated, since expanding his global presence as a Top Ten Finalist on the hit show The X Factor.
As you will hear on Rock ‘N Soul, LeRoy comfortably embraces a wide range of genres. He’s a passionate Soul/R&B singer, a powerful blues/rocker and equally at home as an acoustic folk/soul singer2013. Band Website
With an arsenal of banjos, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel, upright bass, and thundering drums, their sound is a wholesome mishmash of creek mud, rusty nails and your mom's cookin'. It's sincere, straight-forward and sexy, effortlessly combining such disparate musical styles as rock, country, bluegrass, and punk to create an incomprehensibly smooth and accessible sound for true believers and skeptics alike. Band Website

New wine releases include the popular holiday Cranberry Jubilee which sells out each year.
We are also releasing our Merlot 2008 and Cabernet Franc 2008. Across the board, our 2008 red vintage is delicious, full-bodied and smooth. The Merlot is well balanced, with just the right amount of tannins. The flavors of bright red cherry and notes of vanilla and almond abound. The Cabernet Franc is extremely complex, full of dark berry, toasted aromatic wood, nutmeg and clove.
- Sample fall-hearty mushroom and local grain soup prepared by Chef Dave Long of Oven Spoonful.
- Hang out on our decorated patio and enjoy fresh popped truffle popcorn.
- Solve our winery word search and enter to win a fabulous wine purse.
- Take advantage of featured event wine specials.
Limited only by our imaginations, each winery will strive to design the most unique vineyard watchman ever to scare (or commune with) a pesky bird! Visitors can vote for their favorite scarecrow while tasting the best of the vintage.
The Olympic Peninsula Wineries will each put their creative grape juices to the test at this year's annual Harvest Wine Tour, with each of us displaying our own artistic interpretation of the "Wine Scarecrow" for visitors to enjoy.
With artist in residence, Kristi Knowles on our side, of course Olympic Cellars will win the scarecrow competition. Our Scarecrow, Sasquina, is modeled after the sassy female Sasquatch seen around town. She’s said to be dating the bicycle-riding male Sasquatch who frequents the very popular Next Door Gastropub in Port Angeles. More on their love life to follow…
The $30.00 ticket for the self-guided tour can be purchased at participating wineries during the event. Tickets entitle participants to a commemorative wine glass and complimentary wine tastings at each winery during the event weekend.
A tasting fee of $5.00 per winery will apply to non-ticketed visitors. Get your ticket stamped at all eight wineries and be eligible to enter our gift basket drawing.
