Kitsap Wine Festival is this weekend

It’s that time of the year again, time to head down to the Bremerton waterfront for the annual Kitsap Wine Festival. The weather is set to once again be perfect — sun, sun and more sun — and we couldn’t think of a better way to spend our Saturday.

The event is from 2 to 5:30 p.m. at the Harborside Fountain Park next to the Bremerton Ferry Terminal. Tickets are still available. They’re $50 if bought by Friday (Aug. 17) and $60 at the door. Proceeds from the event benefit the Harrison Medical Center Foundation.

While the focus of the day will be on wine, for those who prefer a cold beer on a hot day there will be a selection of brews from local breweries. The event also includes small plates and bites from local restaurants and a chance to socialize in the sun.

Another nice thing about this event is the option to buy the wine. If you try something that you absolutely love you can head to the retail shop and buy it before heading home.

To see a complete list of wineries and breweries planning to be in attendance, visit the Kitsap Wine Festival site. You can also purchase your tickets from there.

We will be in attendance Saturday and like we’ve done in previous years will write up a review of our favorite wines tasted in the days following. If you do go, remember to slather on the sunscreen and drink plenty of water — it’s going to be a hot one!

    Brynn,

    Thanks for taking time to visit and taste with me at the Kitsap Fest. And for taking notes! It was fun for me to attend for the first time; actually sold a wee bit of wine, too. Note to self: bring more Late Harvest. It was sold out in the first hour I’m told.
    Looking forward to your post on the event.

    Cheers,

    Don Gagne

    Don,

    Thanks for taking the time to talk with me. I went up to the retail shop at the end and noticed the late harvest was gone… a good sign!

    We hope to have the post up by mid-week.

    Brynn
