San Juan Island boasts a population of just over 2,000 people.
We had limited time on the island (day trip), so we had to set some priorities. First thing: visit San Juan Vineyards! We hired a taxi and headed for this charming winery out in the countryside, about 10 minutes from the ferry dock.
|The tasting room used to be a schoolhouse, built in 1895 |
and beautifully remodeled.
|The vineyard's previous owners built this chapel,|
but it looks like it's always been there.
This small winery offers only four selections (fruity white wines) and they can only be purchased on the island. We tasted them all and brought home four bottles.
|I'm enjoying a glass of Siegerrebe |
and a little sunshine.
