I love this place it is by far my favorite place to go for a tasting . Wonderful local wines, the owners are great they really educate you as they pour, but they combine it with comedy. So much fun to go relax have a wonderful glass or two, the cheese and fruit plate is wonderful great value as well.... More

We wandered into this tasting bar, and found it a great place to try some local product. We took advantage of sitting out on their deck and enjoying a glass we purchased after we tasted. the host was very knowledgeable.

This was our third wine bar stop on an overnight visit to LaConner. The first stop Hellam's Vineyard, (where we were informed the complementary tasting that came with our hotel room was not valid, because they were having a "special"), after being informed of that in a tone that I can describe as no less than borderline rude, we looked...

We came here specifically to participate in the wine and chocolate event...five red wines paired with five decadent chocolate bites. Upon arrival, we were told to take any table in the small dining area and someone would be right with us. Thirty minutes later, the same young lady that directed us to find a table, finally came and asked if... More

Thinking this was just another place to taste some wine, we were very pleasantly surprised. We arrived in the late afternoon and the tasting was a blind taste of six pinot noirs. We were asked to rate the color, aroma, taste, etc. and to try and guess where the wine originated. Great fun and something different. The proprieter was most... More

I just wanted to let you what a disappointing experience we had at Washington Sips. We arrived and from the moment they learned we were not there for the expensive dinner and show but we had a voucher, we were immediately were made to feel unwelcomed. We sat down.. waited, waited and waited to be helped. All around us everyone... More

I am sorry you made the trip during our Argentine Wine & Food Pairing Special Event and were disappointed. If you note, the Living Social voucher states: " Promotion not valid during live music and special events" We had this added as we get extremely busy during special events and live music - and therefore cannot devote the personal attention...

Small wine bar, don’t expect a big selection of meals there, light appetizers, but you definitely can rely that you taste some great local wines. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable, they focus on Washington wines and very carefully select the wines they offer. The view from the deck over the river is beautiful. They have music quite often,... More

We've been there a few times and have enjoyed conversing with the owners, Mike and Kathy. It's nice to learn about local wines and wineries. We had a wonderful time on the fourth with good wine, food, music, and then watching the fireworks over the water. Hope to have this become our annual place to be that day.
