Perennial Vintners is a tiny family run estate winery on
Bainbridge Island, Washington state, USA. Just across Puget Sound
from Seattle, PV is the closest commercial vineyard to downtown
Seattle restaurants, just 7 miles for the local
restaurant afficienado. Being in a cool maritime climate, PV
specializes in highly aromatic delicate wines with the bracing
acidity that makes for ideal food wines. Newer releases include
berry port-style dessert wines, and more familiar dry white and
red table wines from warmer climate eastern Washington.
Husband and wife team Mike Lempriere and Beth Schoenberg first
made wine as amateurs in 1997. Early on, Mike was declared to
have a gift for winemaking; with a large circle of winemaker
friends for advice, lots of studying, and a WSU certificate in
Viticulture, Mike has pursued and is an excellent winemaker.
Unfortunately, Beth no longer shares the dream and with a divorce
in 2010, the winery is now all Mike and a handful of
Perennial opened as a commercial winery in 2006. With vineyards
planted in 2004, and lease agreements with nearby vineyards,
Perennial also has "old vine" products, with some of WA States
older vines, planted in the early 1980's. (Doesn't sound like
much, but for WA state, 30 years is old!) The target demographic
is the "locavore" community; PV is extremely proud of it's estate
wines made with Puget Sound AVA fruit, consistently emphasizing
Seattle area local product matches in food pairings.
