Sip & Savor at Amelia Wynn Winery
Amelia Wynn Winery has been producing wine since 2008. Like many Bainbridge Island Wineries, Amelia Wynn sources grapes from vineyards in eastern Washington. They focus primarily focus on Bordeaux, Rhone, Italian, and Spanish varietal wines, many of which have won numerous national awards as well as 94 point scores. Previously, you could find their wines at local gem Island Vintners, a cozy little space on Winslow Way that was known not just for its great selection of wine, but as a local art gallery as well. Recently, they moved locations just a little way down the street into a newly renovated yet historic building on Bainbridge Island.
The new space brings them much more room to sit back and sip on their delicious wines, but it also has breathed new life into the Bainbridge Island food scene, with the addition of the Amelia Wynn Bistro. There’s a lot to love about the dining scene on Bainbridge Island, but the Amelia Wynn Bistro is certainly at the top of our list of favorites. They offer both indoor and outdoor dining on their patio overlooking Winslow Way.
Right now, their current menu is expansive, and heavily influenced by Spanish/Peruvian cuisine. Enjoy delicacies like Paella, Spanish Empanadas, Grilled Octopus, Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, Peruvian Roasted Chicken, and so much more! It really is a treat for the senses, and well worth a visit the next time you come to Bainbridge Island.
