Dancing Fish Vineyards - Freeland
Updated: Dec 6, 2021
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, stovetop, a three-bay stainless steel sink, baker's racks, and a professional ice maker to meet any of your preparation needs.
With extra room for guests, the “Tasting Room” and “Barrel Room” extend to an outdoor patio with a 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.
