Rolling Bay Winery gets nod in Seattle MagazineApril 23rd, 2012 by brynn grimley
Bainbridge Island’s Rolling Bay Winery was recently highlighted in Seattle Magazine.
Actually it was the winery’s 2008 Manitou Red that received the recognition. The wine was listed by the magazine as “10 Best New Washington Wines of 2012″.
As the article politely points out, Rolling Bay Winery isn’t new — the winery became bonded in 2007, but started years before that as a co-op between three mutual friends.
Winemaker Alphonse de Klerk continues to hit the mark with his blending skills — hence the regular recognition for the winery’s blends, specifically the Manitou Red, which is probably one of the better-known wines the small-scale winery produces.
I have a bottle of the Manitou Red sitting in our wine rack that I need to crack open one of these days, but I’ve been waiting for just the right occasion.
