‘Wine on the Rock’ pairs vino, chocolate and fun

Goodies galore abound at all seven Bainbridge Island wineries Saturday, Feb. 10 and Sunday, Feb. 11 during the annual Wine on the Rock wine-and-chocolate pairing tasting event, hosted by the Winery Alliance of Bainbridge Island.

The fun will take place at each winery from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Ticket purchase, good for either day, gets you one visit at each winery and also includes a special event wine glass, tastings at each of the wineries — 28 different wines total — chocolate to complement the wines and a six-bottle wine tote.

Participants must be 21 or older.

Officials noted that most wineries are small, and it is recommended that guests break into groups of no more than six people for attending a tasting.

Bringing food is encouraged, though some wineries will have cheese and other small snacks available for purchase.

The chocolates on tap are as varied as the vino.

For example, Amelia Wynn and the Island Tasting Room Gallery Cafe will be offering handmade chocolate eclairs; Bainbridge Vineyards will have handcrafted raspberry wine truffles (made with their own raspberry wine), savory shortbread and rosemary and sea salt roasted almonds; Eagle Harbor Wine Company will feature handmade chocolates from Bainbridge Island-based chocolatier L’Atelier; Eleven Winery’s chocolate truffles infused with Eleven wine are made by Bainbridge’s own BonBon; and Fletcher Bay Winery will set out a variety of handmade truffles from Bainbridge Island’s Powell & Jones Chocolates.

Tickets will be available for purchase at any winery the day of the event for $50, but discounted tickets can be bought in advance via www.eventbrite.com.
