The Schweitzer Mountain NW Winefest is back for the fifth year! Come on up for two days in the Schweitzer Village. Great bands, great wine, great food and great fun! We have 5 bands lined up, 20 regional wineries with 80 wines, BBQ, arts & crafts vendors and activities for the whole family!

To participate in the wine tasting (and drinking) you’ll simply stop by the sales tent and purchase your souvenir wine glass with tasting tickets. Then head to “Wine Alley” to sample whichever wines interest you. Just hand the server your ticket and they’ll pour the wine of your choice. Each ticket gets you 2 ounces of wine so you can work your way around the village sampling all the great wines. You can purchase additional tickets at the wine tent so you can keep sampling all weekend. Vote for your favorite white, red and rose wines, then purchase bottles of your favorites to take home! 

This year's wineries will include:

  • Charles Smith
  • Sawtooth
  • The Four Graces
  • Three Rivers
