Great wines & a fun atmosphere!
Chorus Frog Winery is located in Edgewood, Washington.
Just North of Tacoma and easily accessed from I-5 and Hwy 167. Our winery is located in a separate building in our back yard. Our patio is open for a tasting area.
We will starting our Fall hours on September 16th. We will continue to be open Saturdays and Sundays 12 – 6 pm. Monday through Friday we will be open by appointment only. There will be a lot going on with the start of crush on September 19th. People are welcome to come by and watch the winemaking process. This will likely go through the month of October this year. Check Facebook and Google for updates.
We occasionally need to adjust hours or close for special events or an infrequent vacation. You can call or text to verify hours or check on Google as we make any changes there.
We travel to central and eastern Washington each year to purchase grapes for our wines. We process and create the wines here in Edgewood. We have built a commercial winery, complete with patio seating, on our home property.
About Chorus Frogs
We named our winery “Chorus Frog” because of the hundreds of little chorus frogs that inhabit our yard. A Chorus Frog is usually no larger than an inch in size. They love to sit on plants and leaves, and are known for their loud vocalizations. Each year in February and March our resident frogs are very noisy trying to attract a mate. We have recorded them singing at over 80 decibels on our back deck! Throughout the summer and fall you’re likely to encounter one or more on the many plants around the winery and patio.
Michael is a cultivator of carnivorous plants. We have many varieties of potted carnivorous plants lining our deck and patios. The little Chorus Frogs like to sit on the plants, hence the inspiration for our labels.
The pictures on our labels were created from photos Leann took of actual frogs on plants around our yard.
