Event description


Wine on the Rock: Wine & Cheese

Two days of wine and local cheese pairings at all seven Bainbridge Island wineries. This event is happening over Mother's Day weekend, and is the perfect way to treat your mom to something she'd really enjoy - wine and cheese.

Event will take place at each winery from 12-5pm Saturday & Sunday. Ticket purchase is good for both days (one visit at each winery) and includes:

- Special event wine glass

- Wine tasting at each of the wineries - 28 different wines total

- Cheese to complement the wine tasting

- 6 bottle wine tote

Participants must be 21 and older to buy. Please drink responsibly. Transportation options are available on our website.

Note: The Amelia Wynn winery location will not be open for this event. Instead, their downtown, Winslow Way tasting room, Island Tasting Room Gallery Cafe will be the stop to taste their wine. This is also the location closest to the ferry. The other two downtown, Winslow Way tasting rooms, Eleven and Eagle Harbor will be open for tasting, but will not have Wine on the Rock event activities and cheese. Please visit the Eleven and Eagle Harbor winery locations for the Wine on the Rock stop.
