Winemaker: Mike Lempriere
Perennial Vintners began in 1997, when Mike Lempriere took an interest in making wine. Mike continued to make wine as a hobbyist through 2002 and garnered many successes, including several awards in the Puyallup Fair amateur competitions.
Mike soon came to understand that 95% of winemaking is truly done in the vineyard, and that making his own wines was not enough – it was necessary to live upon and manage the vineyard for the dream to be complete.
In 2003 Mike and family moved to Bainbridge Island and began planting their vineyard. As of Summer 2005 Perennial Vintners is a bonded commercial vineyard and winery. The first commercial vintage was released in March 2007.
Tasting room is Harbor Square Wine Company, 756 Winslow Way E • Open M/Tu 1-7:30, W-Sat 11:30-7:30, Sun closed.
