Owner description: Whidbey Island Vineyards and Winery offers a quaint tasting room, and a selection of wines made from estate and Eastern Washington grapes.
Reviewed May 26, 2014

A friend and I were excited to visit the winery and do a wine tasting. When we entered the shop there were other guests visiting as well and talking with the staff member. We were never acknowledged or asked what wines we would like to taste. We waited at least 10 minutes for the staff member to at the least acknowledge our presence and welcome us. We eventually left. There was no way that the staff member didn't see us come in. It was very rude.

Great wine, wonderful people and beautiful location. We were married here. They now have musical concerts in the summer months.

The wine is of course fantastic, and the tasting room staff are friendly and wonderful to speak with. We love sitting outside and enjoying the vines.

We met Sean, our host, during the Friday Art Walk the night before our visit. He was serving Whidbey Island Vineyards' Franc and Island White to guests visiting an Art Show at one of Langley's art studios. We were very pleased to see that he was our host when we stopped by the winery the next day for tastings of their wines.

Upon arrival, we were greeted (stared at, actually) by the owner's cat, who was glad to give up guard duty as soon as Sean arrived to serve us. Having met and visited with Sean the night before, we immediately felt comfortable and welcome. While tasting the wines, we noticed the owner out in the vineyard working on some of the vines. Sean was eager to explain what the owner was doing, and what type of vines he was working with (only white grapes can be grown locally; the reds come from Eastern Washington).

We found two wines (the Franc and Island White) that we took home for Christmas dinner and one (Sangiovese) for a hostess gift. Somehow, we ended up with only one bottle (Rosette) for ourselves, so we're excited to know that WIV&W distributes to a couple of our local wineshops and grocery stores.

ANY of the family-owned Whidbey Island wineries is a great visit. The host is always happy to tell you about their wines, vineyard, and stories about how some of their blends came about. They'll even break out an extra something special for you to try. We find our visits to be a lot more friendly and informative than the large Wine Tasting Rooms.

Great wine. Great outdoor seating. What else do you need? The only bummer part is they don't have a real bathroom, if you need to use the restroom you have to use an outhouse. Granted, it is very well kept, but still.
