A seventh winery takes shape on Bainbridge

February 11th, 2010 by tristan baurick

For decades there was Bainbridge Island Vineyards & Winery.

Then, a few years ago, came Eleven. And then, starting in 2007, came Perennial Vintners, Eagle Harbor Wine Company, Victor Alexander, Rolling Bay Winery…and now Fletcher Bay Winery.

Here’s what Fletcher Bay has to say about itself:

“Fletcher Bay Winery specializes in producing quality, rich and full bodied red wines by using only the best quality grapes from the best vineyards in Walla Walla and the Yakima Valley. In 2009, the winery introduced a Pinot Grigio white wine made with late harvest grapes from the Yakima Valley. In addition, the winery produces a few fruit wines made from freshly picked berries and apples grown locally on the Island.”

The first batch of reds are scheduled to go on sale sometime this month.

A few of the island’s wineries are planning a package deal for Valentine’s Day that pairs chocolate with wines. Find out more about by clicking here.

By the way, if you’re thinking of starting your own winery, take note that the names of Bainbridge bodies of water are being trademarked fast. Eagle Harbor, Fletcher Bay and Rolling Bay are out. Manzanita Bay, Murden Cove, Madison Bay and Blakely Harbor are still up for grabs.
