A festive, magical evening by the water, under a beautiful clear starry night sky in a big tent with lots of great food.  Bainbridge Uncorked introduced event goers to the local terroir and the enthusiasm around island wines. 

Pouring some of the finest wines made in Western Washington a broad mix of wines and wine varietals were offered.  Including,  locally grown grape varietals  Muller-Thurgau and Madeleine Angevine .   And then for those who dared big bold reds as single varietals Cabernet and Malbec were poured along with a couple of very nice red blends.  The white wines poured included Pinto Gris, Chardonnay and excellent blends of Pinot Gris and Chardonnay or Chardonnay and Voignier.   The winemakers on the Island make artisan crafted wines as unique as they are and there is something for every wine fan.  

Bainbridge Uncorked was held to preview Island wines and to promote an event to be held in October called Island Wine Weekend.    Though there is no need to wait until October you can come out and discover Bainbridge Island wines anytime.   Eleven Winery, Eagle Harbor and Victor Alexander all have tasting rooms downtown Winslow that are open most weekends.  All of the wineries will be open the weekend of May 29-31.  For more information check out Wineries of Bainbridge Island
