Mike & Beth have been rabid followers of the WA State wine industry since the mid-1980's. In addition to MikeL's WA Winery Guide, Mike got the interest in actually making his own wine with a visit to Tefft Cellars in 1997. With a visit to Bainbridge Island Vineyard and Winery in 1999, the seed of the dream of actually owning and living on a vineyard was planted. In December 2003, Mike and Beth sold their Seattle home to move to a small but plantable property on Bainbridge, which allowed them both to keep their day-gigs in Seattle in order to pay for this new farm! Please visit their official website for more details.

As the winery has an official website with detailed wine notes, I'll leave this section to them. Please visit the link (above) for current wine info.

Of special note:
Perennial Vintners is a micro-winery and vineyard. We are a family farm, and are proud to be associated with local agriculture even though we're just 8 miles from downtown Seattle. Our wines are all produced from 100% Estate grown fruit.
We are honored to live in such a place of beauty as Seattle. Our wines are intended to enliven our local bounty, especially seafood. We are the first to grow the Melon de Bourgogne grape on a commercial scale in WA State, and are specializing in cool climate delicate white wines. Please visit our website for more details...
