Doe Bay Wine Company, an Orcas Island bottle shop and tasting room, has announced the opening of their second location in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood of Seattle in early 2023. The tasting room will be situated in the new “Shared Roof” building on the corner of 70th and Greenwood. Two other businesses, Ben’s Bread Co., from former Sea Creatures baker Ben Campbell, and a new tap room location from Holy Mountain Brewing will share the courtyard with the bottle shop.
Doe Bay Wine Company recently celebrated its fifth anniversary on Orcas Island where they are known for their carefully curated selection of wine, beer, cider and sake. There’s an emphasis on fun, esoteric and small producers discovered through decades of travel around the world by the team. Additionally, their in-house winery “The Orcas Project,” features custom collaborations with ten critically acclaimed winemakers highlighting labels designed by island artists.
Owner Cole Sisson grew up on Orcas Island and has since spent his career working with wine in restaurants, distribution and importing. He is known for his love of travel, food and mezcal. “I’m thrilled to open a second location on Phinney Ridge,” said Cole. “In college I lived next to Sully’s Snow Goose, honed my spirits knowledge at Oliver’s Twist and have always maintained my connection to this neighborhood. I think it’s one of the most exciting and welcoming communities in Seattle.”
