Barrister Winery Wine Cruise

August 21, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm


Hosted by Hellams Vineyard Wine Shop & Wine Bar – on the waterfront in La Conner

Friday, August 21st - This is a fully catered dinner cruise featuring full appetizers, cracked crab and chicken, roasted potatoes, salad, bread and dessert with your hosts Greg Lipsker and Michael White!  The voyage will depart from La Conner at the Channel Lodge dock (directly in front of the wine shop) and take us up the Swinomish Channel and through Deception Pass... this is a fantastic scenic cruise abundant with eagles, seals, and spectacular scenery and wonderful history.  During the cruise you'll have an opportunity to order wine and pick up afterwards at the shop.  Cost is $150 per person + tax.  RSVP is required by calling Hellams Vineyard Wine Shop at 360.466.1758. 

We’ll be cruising on the Salish Express which is 100' long and has 12 private booths for seating, which have been divided off to account for proper distancing.  We're also limiting the total number of people to 45 - this gives ample space for everyone, including the open top deck to browse and enjoy the scenery.  Unlike prior trips, we'll have table service instead of buffet-style... which will be a nice touch!  All cruises are Friday evenings and details are listed below; we encourage you to book a room in La Conner, as you can easily walk from all hotels, B&B's, etc. from the boat.   And, all properties are being very flexible with their reservation policies (please ask upon booking).
If you would like to RSVP please reply to this message, or call the shop at 360.466.1758.   Nothing is charged until a few days before the trip, and if we need to cancel you'll be notified.  We're hopeful and looking forward to more incredible wine tasting experiences on the Salish Sea!  Thank you!

*** Please check in no later than 6 p.m. at the wine shop, thank you!  We'll board approx. 6:15***
