On Saturday we found ourselves with a little bit of free time on Whidbey Island (we are NEVER early so this may be a first) and so we popped into Blooms Winery on Whidbey Island. It is a very casual and charming little tasting room filled with eclectic art, cute wine-related gift items and of course…wine.
You take a seat at tables that have been converted from wine barrels and Ken came over and gave us a taste. (You can choose 5 tastes for $6).
Our companion enjoyed the Riesling and we started off with a yummy Syrah. By the time we got to the Bloom Vineyard Cabernet we were all old friends and Ken told us they source those grapes from his brother’s vineyard in California.
Their menu includes food which is a nice touch – cheese tray, antipasti, crackers and dip and bruschetta. On Sunday afternoons they have live music with no cover charge. An excellent way to spend part of your weekend.
