Rocky Pond Winery—a favorite local winery in Orondo, Washington—opened its event venue, Milestone Events at Rocky Pond Vineyards, in mid-December. The venue is located between the cities of Wenatchee and Chelan, surrounded by the winery’s sprawling grapevines and boasting endless views of the Columbia River Valley.
Planners can choose from a charming pavilion or a versatile amphitheater as the primary site for their events. The venue can accommodate up to 200 attendees, and event operations are overseen by Seattle-based Columbia Hospitality. Eventgoers will have the opportunity to connect with the Rocky Pond winemaking team to select pairings or get hands-on custom crush or bottling experiences.
“Rocky Pond has always been rooted in excellence and celebrating the beauty and abundance of Washington’s wine-growing region,” says Michelle Dufenhorst, owner of Rocky Pond, in a prepared statement. “Milestone Events represents an escape from the mundane, and it is our mission to create a tranquil space for families, colleagues, and loved ones to connect. Whether it’s a wedding, special celebration, or corporate retreat, our unwavering commitment to hospitality ensures that every guest receives the same meticulous attention as our award-winning wines. We handle each event with the utmost care so guests can share life’s most precious moments with the ones they love, surrounded by the beauty of the Northwest.”
