Scatter Creek Wine & Beer Tasting

Will will be offering a wine & beer tasting courtesy of the Scatter Creek Winery on select train rides this year.  Get your taste buds puckered, your nose in the air and imbibe spirits from this award winning winery.

Scatter Creek Winery is a family owned and operated winery that has been serving Washington communities since March of 2005 when our Wine Master perfected the blends using grapes from Eastern Washington. Scatter Creek Winery was just a dream when we started out 14 years ago working to create that perfect blend that our customers now rave about. We may be a small winery compared to others; but, are very proud of what we can do for you, our family and our friends.

Since we opened up ‘The Creek’ that cold March day, we have won 10 Medals/Awards from local magazines, newspapers, and the local community festivals we proudly participate in.
