Gretchen Wolf and Chris Wiggins have sold the Earth & Vine Wine Bar in Pleasant Beach and will be moving from Bainbridge Island to become innkeepers in the Columbia River Gorge.

“We are so grateful for all who have walked through our door and have become part of our Earth & Vine family. The bar has become a special gathering place where people feel at home and cared for,” Wolf said.

The pair has purchased a small inn located in White Salmon.

“We see our new project in White Salmon as an opportunity to merge all that we have loved and learned in operating Earth & Vine with our passion for

community, wine, food, and home,” she said.

The wine bar has been sold to the Pleasant Beach Village family of businesses located in the Lynwood Center neighborhood, and Pleasant Beach Village officials said Earth & Vine has become a great gathering place for the community, due in large part to Wolf’s welcoming nature and her staff’s commitment to providing open and generous hospitality.

“Pleasant Beach Village truly shares in the valuable community that Gretchen and Chris have created with Earth & Vine,” said Joe Raymond, general manager for Pleasant Beach Village.

“We are very committed to continuing to provide the care and experience Earth & Vine staff and family are accustomed to,” he added.

Wolf and Wiggins are moving from their island home late September, following the handoff and a final celebration with Earth & Vine’s community at the wine bar’s Pleasant Beach location.

A send-off celebration is planned for the weekend of Sept. 15, more details to follow.
