February 2023 Wine on the Rock with Eagle Harbor, Eleven, Fletcher Bay and Rolling Bay Wineries – February 9th through 11th
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. Bainbridge Wineries 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
Thursday, February 9th – Friday, February 10th – Saturday, February 11th
Grab your BFF or SO and join us on Bainbridge Island to celebrate the month of love! Four island wineries will be pairing their wines with local chocolates the weekend before Valentine’s Day.
Two different tickets are available. One for tasting at each of the four wineries on Thursday and Friday, February 9th and 10th and one ticket for tasting at each of the four wineries on Saturday, February 11th only. The tickets are split because our island wineries are so busy on Saturdays and they want your tasting experience to be as enjoyable as possible and not too crazy or crowded, so they’re spreading the love around on Thursday and Friday.
Ticket includes wine tasting at four island wineries, Eagle Harbor Wine Co., Eleven Winery, Fletcher Bay Winery, & Rolling Bay Winery, a special event wine glass and chocolates at each winery. Taste on your own schedule, anytime on your ticket day(s).
Wine and chocolate pairings are still in the works, but so far, here is our line up!
