Event description


Wine on the Rock: Wine & Cheese

Bainbridge Island is a beautiful coastal community located a short 35 minute ferry ride from Seattle, but feels like a world away. Join us on the island for two days of island made wines paired with local cheeses.

This event takes place at five of the wineries on the island and your ticket includes four different wines at each winery (20 total wines), cheese pairings, a four bottle wine tote (to carry all the yummy wine you're going to take home) and a special event wine glass.

You are in control of your weekend - check in at any of the five wineries anytime throughout the weekend, get your wine glass and let the fun begin! Wine on the Rock happens Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26 from 12-5pm.

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

Parents: Let your kids play while you enjoy the event!

We've partnered with Scrappy Art Lab on Bainbridge Island for a fun art activity drop off for your kids.

Saturday & Sunday, 2- 5pm both days

Pack a snack and drop your kids (ages 4.5+) at Scrappy Art Lab for creative reuse fun. Themed projects and self-guided build time. $10/hour per child.
