Anacortes Spring Wine Festival
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.
From one 2017 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.
The cost of either tickets include a souvenir tasting glass, unlimited wine tasting, unlimited bites from restaurants, plus chocolate and cheese samples with the option to purchase. You will also have the ability to purchase wines that you can later take home (no open containers on the festival grounds, please).
From one 2017 Spring Wine Festival attendee: I am already looking forward to next year, and plan on visiting some of the featured wineries. This is simply a lovely event in a beautiful spot. My husband and I truly enjoyed our visit, and we loved the shops downtown.
