Morning: After a good night’s sleep at The Inn at Gig Harbor make your way down to the hotel’s restaurant, the Heritage Restaurant, for a hearty breakfast.

Mid-morning: Relax after breakfast or explore downtown Gig Harbor to get a feel for this charming town before taking off to your first wine tasting. Begin your Pierce County wine tasting tour at Stina’s Cellars. Known for producing premium reds and dry to off-dry whites, Stina’s Cellars source all of their grapes from Washington state so you know you are getting the best!

Lunch: As you begin making your way to your next wine tasting, stop in at Adriatic Grill for a bite served up by one of the best chefs in South Puget Sound as voted by readers of South Sound Magazine. Just make sure not to load up on their complimentary bread [or do!]

Mid-afternoon: Head to your next tasting on Tacoma’s 6th Avenue District at Vino Aquino. With the ability to have private tastings for up to 25 people, Vino Aquino is a local favorite! Interested in making your own wine? Purchase all the accessories you need to make your own wine at home during your stop. Next, visit 21 Cellars located in Tacoma’s North End. This boutique, urban winery specializes in Bourdeaux varietals and wines that showcase the deep, earthy qualities of Washington’s premier vineyards.

Evening: After you make your way over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge back to Gig Harbor, enjoy a waterfront dining experience at Tides Tavern, a Gig Harbor institution. Enjoy the sunset over a nice glass of Washington wine and freshly caught seafood before returning to The Inn at Gig Harbor.
