1. Karma Vineyards - 18 BRIX Restaurant
- Address: No 1681 S Lakeshore Rd, Chelan, WA 98816-9162
- Phone: +1 509-682-5538
Known for sparkling wine, Karma Vineyards was the first vineyard in Chelan to cane prune Pinot Noir grapes. A technique commonly used with the Oregon Pinot Noir, the owner decided to try this method in 2006 with the goal of decreasing potential mildew, very common in this thin skinned tight clustered grape. Increased airflow has been key in creating a disease free Pinot Noir block that has continually produced excellent Pinot Noir. The Gewürztraminer is dry farmed, as it sits on a high water table, and produces a beautiful balance of sugar and acidity each year. Gorgeous fruit that is later made in the Alsatian style has continually yielded rave reviews from Karma customers. 18 Brix restaurant is the namesake for the level of sugar in the grapes picked for our champagne. They generally pick at 18-19 BRIX… so there you have it! Seated inside or out, the restaurant is open year round. Chef Alicia Alvarez will introduce you to her delicious creations that are Washington fresh with a French twist! Locally sourced, produced, and eaten… perfect! You can come and enjoy from 11 AM to 4 PM (Thurs - Mon).

I’d get to do something I love, and hopefully, we’d have enough customers to make a living,” he stated. Felipe learned the recipe from his sister Leocadia Sanchez, and the rest as they say is history. He named the restaurant Los Hernandez Tamales, and he started making tamales with other family members – and a reputation was quickly made.
