Thinking of going next year’s Anacortes Spring Wine Festival, but not sure what to expect? Let the photos lead the way.
#1 Location, Location, Location
The historic Port of Anacortes Transit Shed Event Center is along Guemes Channel. Guests can easily move from inside the building to the pier to sip their wines and take in the water and island views.
#2 Wine, Cider and Sparkling Wine!
Washington is the 2nd largest producer of premium wines in the U.S. and with 30 wineries pouring their wonderful creations it’s a great way to sample a variety of wines, as well as, learn about grape varietals, the winemaking process, and flavor profiles.
#3 Tasty Bites
Enjoy culinary creations from eight different restaurants. This year, I was particularly drawn to the dessert selection.
Festival hours: VIP 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., general admission 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; tickets VIPS $75, $50, designated driver $25. Tasting tickets come with a commemorative wine glass.
