Bainbridge Island is home to many passionate and talented artisans of all mediums, and the art of wine-making is no exception. Wine-making began with grapes grown right here on the island and expanded to include world-class grapes from eastern Washington. Our vintners’ handcrafted wines are sure to provide a unique tasting experience that everyone will enjoy. The Winery Alliance of Bainbridge Island proudly represents the seven award-winning boutique wineries on the island, offering year-round events consisting of wine tasting tours as well as musical performances at selected wineries.
WINE ON THE ROCK is one such event and is held four times a year, and the next event is Saturday, February 15, 2020 and Sunday, February 16, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
Treat your sweetheart (or a friend or parent) to a Valentine’s weekend on Bainbridge Island, touring five of our seven wineries and an opportunity to meet the winemakers.
A total of twenty wines will be available and paired with chocolates, chosen to specifically complement the wines you are tasting. In addition, you’ll receive an event wine glass and a 4-bottle wine tote.
Don’t forget the kids! The Winery Alliance of Bainbridge Island has partnered with Scrappy Art Lab here on Bainbridge Island for a fun art activity drop off, Saturday and Sunday from 2:00PM to 5:00PM. Available for children ages 4 ½ and up to enjoy themed projects and self-guided build time—$10.00/hour per child. RSVP with Scrappy Art Lab prior to the event and don’t forget to pack a snack for the little ones!
Please Note: The Amelia Wynn winery will not be open for this event, instead, they will be participating via their Winslow Way tasting room (downtown). The other three downtown, Winslow Way tasting rooms, Eleven, Eagle Harbor and Fletcher Bay, will be open for tasting, but will not have Wine on the Rock event activities and chocolate pairings. Please visit the Eleven, Eagle Harbor and Fletcher Bay winery locations for the Wine on the Rock stop (Perennial Vintners and Bainbridge Vineyards will not be participating in this event).
