The 2017 Spring Wine Festival date was Saturday, April 8th
The Anacortes Spring Wine Festival brings 30 wineries to Fidalgo Island for an afternoon of decadent wine tasting, food pairings, and an in-house wine shop. Go out afterwards and spend the weekend enjoying live music, art, shopping, and blooming tulip fields. Visitors travel from all corners of the world to behold the amazing Skagit Valley tulip fields in full bloom. Enhancing their journey to the valley, the Spring Wine Festival presents the opportunity to indulge in the appreciation of red, white and blush wines from across Washington state.
This year’s line up of wineries boasts delicious wines from all of Washington’s major wine regions. With a mix of returning and new wineries to the show (Including Washington’s first dedicated sparking wine house!), attendees can explore finishing flavors of vanilla, spice, tobacco, floral, butter and berry on the historic Anacortes pier overlooking the beautiful Guemes Channel.
While at the festival, attendees not only get to taste some of the best wines in the Pacific Northwest, they will be indulged with tasty bites from local restaurants. There will also be cheese and chocolate to sample and purchase.
Make it a full weekend of the festivities by staying at one of our areas many lodging options. You’ll also have four different options for enjoying live music after the festival in the downtown area. Stay on the island and visit a wide variety of antique shops and specialty merchants for your shopping needs. Several area restaurants are also featuring wines from the festival during the month of April.
Alex Eagleton of Martinez & Martinez Winery in Prosser participated for the first time in 2013. He said the decision to return this year was made before they left town. “This is a great festival … a real welcoming atmosphere,” said Eagleton. “We decided to attend last year when we saw a good representation of Northwest wineries I’m familiar with. Our festival hosts were hospitable, and the crowd a nice mix of people, from the very knowledgeable to those who just enjoy wine and want to learn more about Northwest wine products.”
