RIO VISTA WINES, the Winery on the River, is a hidden jewel on the banks of the sparkling Columbia River and the only waterfront winery. You can visit by car, boat or float plane. (Call Chelan Seaplanes at 509-682-5555 for fly-in wine tasting). If you can’t come by boat or plane, watching from one of the three decks or landscaped lawns while savoring a glass of fine wine is an enjoyable experience with places for everyone to enjoy including the kids.
…RUSTIC AND RELAXED…
RIO VISTA at the CABIN is our new tasting room located in the quaint village of Manson. Situated in a real log cabin, we are already building a reputation as a cozy, convenient gathering place where you can enjoy your favorite Rio Vista wines around the fireplace or on the outside deck.
Call 509-687-1179 for more information.

The French have a saying that the best wines come from grapes grown along a river. That’s certainly true here at Rio Vista Wines. Our grapes thrive and flourish in the exceptional micro climate created by the river, the long hot summer days, the moderate winters and the unique geology of the glacial soil. It’s a great place for people to thrive and flourish, too.
The hunt for great wines is an enjoyable sport, so bring your wine-loving friends and taste the passion in our wines.
