Bainbridge Island was world renowned for its strawberry
production in the 1920's and 1930's. These farmers were mostly
Japanese immigrants, all of whom were interned in WWII. Our
Frambelle raspberry dessert wine is made entirely from fruit
grown by one of these farmers. Please
see this website by Mike
Lempriere with materials from
Island Historical Museum about this history.
Mike gave a presentation entitled "Establishing a vineyard in
the PS AVA" at the WWHA convention in Everett, WA on 09-Jan-2008.
