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 Friday, November 11th and Saturday, November 12th, 2022
Join four island wineries for wine and charcuterie. This is the time of year that all the winemaking action happenings. See wine fermenting, try your hand at punch downs or get a barrel sample from the winemaker during the two-day wine event.
Each ticket is good for one wine flight, plus charcuterie at each of the four participating Bainbridge Island wineries, a wine tote and a special event wine glass.
When you purchase your ticket, you will select which of the four wineries you’d like to start at. Check into this starting winery at any time over the two days and after you check in, you select the route you’d like to taste for the other wineries. Taste all in one day or space it out over the two days of the event.
