Wine at Alefort


Whether you are a true connoisseur or just interested in a glass of pinot noir, wine is back for its fourth year at Alefort! From orange wine to biodynamic, classic varietals to every kind of sparkler, the wine showcase will deliver over 50 wines in five days and help you grow your personal palate.  

We’ll be hosting four wine booths within Alefort:

Booth 1:

All things bubbles! Enjoy sparkling wines from all over the world, including a couple local offerings (and even some Chambongs!)

Booth 2:

Taste the rainbow with a selection of white, orange and pink wines from around the world.

Booth 3:

Get your red fix here, with tastings of all red wine from light and bright reds, to big bold reds.

The Barrel

On top of all that, meet us at The Barrel–a literal wine barrel that will be hosting rotating rare finds and cellared wines daily. This will not be a year to miss as we have a very special guest winemaker from Walla Walla joining us for a private tasting and talk at the Barrel on Saturday. Meet Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars, who will taste us through his current release lineup.

The Barrel is for the true connoisseur who wants to step their tasting game up a notch and try wines they may never get their hands on. Rare gems, old vintages, and small production wines will be offered by the best of the best producers. 

Broaden your Alefort experience by tasting your way through the world of wine!

Cider Bar

We’ll have a whole slew of local and regional ciders to enjoy throughout the fest! Plus, back this year is the infamous Treefort Txotx! This historic Basque tradition is the best way to experience cider during the fest. Cheers with your pals and make new friends during this lively event with Basque dancers, freshly made paella, and taste loads of cider literally shooting out of their barrels!

Zero Proof Bar

NEW this year, Alefort has a decked out, dedicated zero proof bar. You’ll find kombucha, a mixed cocktail menu (including an olive oil martini!), and canned non alcoholic beers. 

Poutine Palace 

Yes, you read that right: a Poutine Palace. New this year, we’ll have 5 different poutines – including a vegetarian option! — made using locally sourced products. Think hand-punched local fries from Mike Heath at M&M Heath Farms (who was featured in Michael Pollan’s NYT article!) and melty cheese curds from Ballard Farms. Take a trip to the Poutine Palace at Alefort and you’ll be fueled and ready to party the whole Treefort week!
