Doe Bay Wine Company opens bottle shop

Doe Bay Wine Company has announced that it will be opening a bottle shop Eastsound this August. The shop will feature a world-class selection of wine, beer and cider; and offer samples and tasting flights from producers both local and around the world. Along with traditional selections, there will be a Northwest-focused growler filling station with rotating taps featuring breweries from Bend to Bellingham. There will be weekly in-store tastings and educational, as well as just for fun classes.

“We are thrilled to open a store in the community where I was raised,” says co-owner Cole Sisson. “Having had the opportunity to travel around the world to vineyards and breweries, and to work as a sommelier with some of its most respected beverage professionals, I can’t express how exciting it is to return home to share these discoveries.”

The company opened as a consulting and sommelier business in 2016. It will continue to offer a range of services outside the shop including in-home events, private sommelier services and wine cellar procurement. Its monthly wine and beer clubs, highlighting rare and interesting offerings from the Northwest and around the world, will be available locally for pick up at the shop or shipped

“The moment I set foot on this island I knew it’s where I wanted to be. We were delighted to find such a perfect location for our business,” said co-owner Stephanie Lees. “I can’t wait to begin teaching classes and producing events for and with the diverse and outstanding community that is Orcas Island.”

Doe Bay Wine Company is located in the former space of Elle Salon and Kathryn Taylor Chocolate. For more information, call Cole Sisson at (206) 280-1429, email, or visit the website at
