From one Spring Wine Festival attendee: Such a great event! Brought a friend from Eastern Washington with me and we’ve decided to make this an annual thing!
This year’s line up of wineries boasts 30 delicious choices from the Pacific Northwest! While at the festival attendees get to sample some of the best wines in our region, indulge in gourmet bites from local restaurants, plus have the opportunity to explore sweets and savories. Attendees can explore finishing flavors of vanilla, spice, tobacco, floral, butter and berry on the historic Anacortes pier while overlooking the beautiful Guemes Channel.
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.
