Eleven Winery is a small-looking place that will surprise you with its range of offbeat varieties. Even though they follow mostly traditional wine-making process, they make sure that their Roussanne, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Pinot Grigio are different. They also arrange concerts and events to combine good wine and great music. Their cozy trial room is a must-visit for all the wine-connoisseurs.
Eleven Winery Reviews & Ratings
We wanted to do some wine tasting while we were at Bainbridge Island, and this spot came up during my search. The counter seats we all taken, but luckily for us, one couple was just leaving and offered us their seats. A female staff came over and explained their tasting briefly. The tasting was very affordable, and we were excited to try their wines. While we were waiting for her come back to put in the order for 5 wines, few more people left, and more people came in and sat next to us. The staff explained everything to them before she came back to us. So, most of us were getting the wines at the same time. The interesting thing was, the female staff was giving detailed explanation to others, while she was really blunt with us. At first, I thought it was the way we were dressed (we were not in fancy attire), but then, as I looked around, everyone was in t-shirts, jeans, and sneakers. The only other thing I could think of, was that I was the only non-white customer. I am not sure that was the reason why she was treating us so differently from other customers, but I surely did not appreciate the way she treated us. I've had many wine tastings in my life, and this one was the first wine tasting I didn't enjoy.
Great variety of wines, and the price per bottle is exceptionally reasonable. Plus, shipping is a flat rate making ordering and sending home a no-brainer. Wine tasting was great, and Stephen made it informative and fun.
The Eleven Winery appeared to be one of the most popular wineries on the island when I stopped by this past weekend on my wine tasting tour of Bainbridge Island. There was a saxophone player in the main room, setting a more upbeat atmosphere as compared to the previous wineries on the island. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, despite the large crowds. The venue also had a larger selection of wines as compared to the other wineries on the Island, however, none of the wines really stood out as being "extraordinary." Despite this, I will still highly recommend checking this venue out because of the great staff and atmosphere of the winery!
We had a really good time. Forrest is not only very knowledgeable about the wines but also a very nice guy and fun to talk to. Great experience, very much recommended!
Go here on a weekday, it's less crowded the earlier you go and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly! They have a lot of wines to choose from and I recommend getting a flight! It's a lovely and small space to sip and enjoy some local wines. All of their grapes are grown in Washington, and they have red, whites, and desert wines. Highly recommend!
