When Tasting Wine,
Leave Driving Behind

It’s harvest season!  Time to venture over to Bainbridge Island for a day, or a weekend, of wine tasting.  

Check out the next Wine on the Rock, November  9 & 10. Enjoy a festival of fall color, sip wine and taste charcuterie at five island wineries, and meet the winemakers to learn how they turn gorgeous Washington grapes into luscious local wine.  Your event ticket is good for the entire weekend, with one 4-pour tasting at each winery and charcuterie pairing. You’ll also receive a special event glass and a 6 bottle wine tote to take home wine purchases.

Leave Your Car Behind

Bainbridge’s seven artisanal wineries are located all over the island. You need wheels to get to the wineries — and a responsible designated driver.  Rideshare and taxi services are limited, especially on busy days for events like Wine on the Rock. 

Make it easy on yourself. Get on board the Tour Bainbridge wine shuttle. We know drinking and driving is a dangerous mix and it’s our mission to be sure wine tasting is a relaxing, fun, and most importantly — safe experience for everyone.  

Travel in safety — and style —to each of the five wineries in a Tour Bainbridge luxury bus.  We will pick you up before Wine on the Rock starts at 12 pm and drop you off when it’s over, after 5 pm, and drive you to each of the wineries in between.  

You’re a VIP with Tour Bainbridge, and your seat is reserved for the whole day. Only 32 spots are available each day, so purchase your transportation ticket today.
