Seven Wineries; One Quaint Island Town
Though the island is small, there’s no shortage of great places for wine tasting once here. In fact, Bainbridge Island is home to seven incredible wineries and is a true wine lover’s paradise. Winemaking first began on Bainbridge Island with a local vineyard. That vineyard, home to Bainbridge Vineyards, is still here. However, winemaking on the island has since expanded to include some of the world-class grapes grown in Eastern Washington, which is home to the majority of Washington’s major wineries and vineyards. Each winery on Bainbridge Island has its own character and charm, but all offer a rewarding wine-tasting experience, especially during these beautiful and warm summer months.
Bainbridge Island also hosts 4 Wine on the Rock events throughout the year, with the next one coming up on July 27 & 28, 2019. These events are an easy way to experience each of Bainbridge Island’s wineries over the course of two days, and they are each themed differently. This July, the theme of the Wine on the Rock event is Wine, Food, and Live Music. The next event will take place on November 9 and 10, featuring Wine and Charcuterie. Tickets are already on sale for that event, so now is the perfect time to plan for a fall getaway to our charming Inn.
