    In the 1890’s, Chuckanut Drive, aka Highway 11,  was nothing more then a rugged logging road.  Today it’s a well traveled scenic drive that’s considered by many to be the most beautiful road in the great Northwest.

    It wasn’t until 1905 that work began to make improvements to the drive from Bellingham.  Convicts started the work and it was completed by state crews in 1916.  It now serves as a charming alternative to Interestate 5 when traveling between  Bellingham and Skagit County.

    The oldest state park in Washington state is Larrabee State Park which is located on the drive.  Blanchard, the home town of Edward R. Murrow of radio and TV fame is located on the southern part of Chuckanut Drive.  Mr. Murrow was famous for his news coverage from Europe during World War II.

    Today the drive is enjoyed year round by locals and tourists alike.  Hiking, hang gliding, bicycling, sightseeing, camping and dining are some of the most popular activities.

    Here’s to everyone that’s contributed to and maintained a road that has brought so much joy to so many.  Thank you.

    Featured Wine: Domaine Magdalena Cabernet Sauvignon

    (Bin #1114 $87) This sophisticated, balanced Washington Red is everything a Cabernet from Red Mountain should be. It’s fine tannins accent the beautiful notes of blackberry, rose petal and earth. Domaine Magdalena is not only beautifully made but also thoughtfully made. The wine undergoes wild yeast fermentation, is unfiltered and is Demeter certified biodynamic. This wine can stand alone but would pair nicely with so many of our dishes including our vegetarian and wild game options.
