Some fellow brokers and I were recently invited to a private event and when I found out about the location I was indeed excited about it.
Between the South end of Holmes Harbor and Mutiny Bay there is a little corner of heaven for all the wine lovers: “Dancing Fish Vineyards”.
Surrounded by tall pines, and approximately 6 acres of pastures and vineyards, this local winery offers a five stars hospitality experience making this a unique spot in Whidbey Island.
From private events, overnight getaways and wine tasting, this Italian inspired farm won’t leave you disappointed.
As soon as we parked, I noticed the multiple rows of grapevines and Italian tomatoes (San Marzano – what a win!).
We were able to meet the owners and learn the history of this magnificent property. They told us about all the renovations done and showed us around. I was able to view the Hospitality Barn, the Loafing Shed, the Tasting Room and the Barrel Room.
The “Hospitality Barn” was built in 1943 and features a magnificent open ceiling, showcasing the rafters and reclaimed and reused wood from the barn’s old walls. Highlights? The gorgeous rustic iron chandeliers, repurposed from old marine cable spools by a local artist.
I was also able to get a sneak peek at the kitchen. This spacious and efficient area is complete with butcher block prep areas, dishwasher, commercial refrigeration, gas oven, stove top, a three-bay stainless steel sink, bakers racks, and a professional ice maker to meet any and all of your preparation needs.
With extra room for guests, the “Tasting Room” and “Barrel Room” extend to an outdoor patio with gas fire pit
and extensive views of the property.
Either for a night getaway or a wine tasting event, make sure you make this a definite stop on your next trip to Freeland.
