Great Bainbridge Island Wine

On our most recent trip over to Bainbridge Island we happened upon the tasting room for Eleven Winery.  They share a space with a fellow Bainbridge winery on the main strip of the downtown area.  Husband and wife team Matt and Sarah Albee's day job is software but their love is wine.  Their winery isn't a big fancy building.  It is the large garage at their home.  Sarah was running the tasting room when we stopped in.  For $5 we tasted all of their wines and spent about an hour learning wine, Matt and Sarah's adventures in wine making and laughing hysterically with the other folks in the tasting room.  Even though the tasting room was about to close when we got there Sarah washed some glasses and stayed late for us.  What a gal!  I highly recommend making a stop here the next time you are on the island.  You will have a great time and also most likely leave with a bottle of wine that you are really excited to bring home.  We chose the Alder Creek Syrah...

This posting was prompted by popping the bottle last night and remembering how fantastic Eleven's wine is.  If you can't make the trip out to Bainbridge Matt and Sarah's wine is all available on their website as well as several spots in Seattle and the surrounding area.
