Eleven Winery wins Best of Bainbridge

Bainbridge Island, WA., September 7, 2019 — Eleven Winery (Eleven) has been voted Best of Bainbridge (BoB) 2019 [Bainbridge Review] in three separate categories; Best Wine List, Best Wine Tasting, and Best Locally Made Wine. BoB is an annual showcase where community members vote for the businesses that represent the best of the city.

Eleven Winery has been in business since 2003 and produces over four thousand cases [of wine] a year. With a team of only eleven individuals, the small town winery has won BoB in multiple categories for six years straight. Inside the tasting rooms, wine enthusiasts have ten different options of wines to sample. Eleven staff, better known as ‘Happiness Engineers’, pride themselves on creating an outstanding tasting experience for all who pass through their tasting rooms.

The medal-winning winemaker and owner, Matt Albee believes that “Anyone who tells you that wine tasting is serious business or makes you feel bad about your level of wine knowledge is just plain missing the point. We are happy to answer all of your questions about wine so that you can hold your own in party conversation with the snobbiest wine geek. We don’t believe in dumbing down our wines for novice tasters – we believe that everyone can enjoy great a wine and that the better the wine, the more fun you’ll have”.

The Eleven team is incredibly honored to be named the BEST for multiple categories and takes this honor very seriously. Our team strives every day to live up to the highest expectations of the community and plans to continue creating a great wine experience.



About Eleven Winery

We produce a variety of red, white and dessert wines, about 4,000 cases altogether, with a focus on Mourvèdre and Viognier. Our wines are made from grapes that are grown in eastern Washington, brought back to Bainbridge Island and made into wine there. We are one of seven wineries on the island, founded in 2003. We have a tasting room on Bainbridge Island at 287 Winslow Way East that is open 12-8pm 7 days.
