We produce a series of wines under ‘The Orcas Project’ umbrella. The Orcas Project is a collaboration between acclaimed Winemakers and Vineyards in the Pacific Northwest, featuring labels designed by Orcas Island Artists. These wines are limited in production and available at our tasting room in Eastsound. Since opening in August of 2017 we have been featured in publications such as Food & Wine, Seattle Magazine and The New York Times. We have a lot of fun! For this experience we will walk you through an extended flight of four of our wines detailing the vineyards and history behind the project. We will also pair this with a cheese board!
