Location:
Various Whidbey Island tasting rooms
Description:
On May 10th & 11th four wineries and a distillery on Whidbey Island open their tasting rooms to present the annual Savor Spring Wine & Food Tour. This tour includes not only tastes of wine & spirits- many of them new releases for spring- but each venue will also feature a food vendor that will have samples of locally made and grown foods, creating a true taste of Whidbey Island. There will be signs to help show your way along the wine tour route. Starting at the south end of the Island your first stop will be just off Wilkinson Rd., the winery and vineyards of Comforts of Whidbey. There you can enjoy vistas of water, vineyards, cattle and other farming in progress while Carl and Rita Comfort and family pour their estate grown wines for your pleasure. Tasty bites to nibble on from Gordon’s restaurant will pair with their wines. Farther north on Maxwelton Road you will find Spoiled Dog Winery and vineyards. Lovely rolling hills of grapes, cattle and other livestock await you. Dogs and vintners great you, offering a Rose made from estate grown Pinot Noir and other fine wines, and food made by Chef Jess of the Roaming Radish. When you leave Spoiled Dog, head straight for the Whidbey Island Distillery tasting room known as the “bunker”. Here Steve and Beverly have been distilling spirits and making liquors and are working on a whiskey to be released soon. You can sample some liquors as well as a savory cheese made with the liquor by JW Desserts, a local award winning pastry chef. The next stop on the tour is Taste for Wine Tasting Room & Art Gallery at the Historic Bayview Corner Cash Store. This is the tasting room for Blooms Winery on Whidbey. Casual seating, wine bar style food and wine, and an art gallery await you. Here you will taste several award winning wines paired with food prepared by one of the food establishments at the Corner – Tres Gringos. There is live music on Sunday from 3-5 pm. On Saturday from 10-2 you can also visit the local Bayview Farmers Market, located just across the street, to stock up on local produce, baked goods and more. The grounds offer interesting art and fun interactive activities for the whole family. Head north from Bayview on Hwy 525 and go to Holmes Harbor Cellars, a few miles down Honeymoon Bay Rd north of the town of Freeland. At Holmes Harbor Cellars, winemaker Greg Martinez and his wife Theresa create wonderful rich award winning reds and whites in their Tuscan style winery. If the weather is good, enjoy some time on the patio enjoying the scenic views with your wine and tasty food samples made by the chef at Captain Whidbey Inn & Restaurant of Penn Cove. The tickets for the tour are $20. in advance, available at the participating tasting rooms or online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/565371, or $25. at the door that weekend. The hours are 11 am to 5 pm both May 10th & 11th, although some winery tasting rooms are open later.
