This is a fun little spot to spend some time in Friday Harbor. The tasting are $5 but that can be refunded with a purchase over $40. The wines are reasonably priced for the quality. The gift shop is cute with lots of wine related gifts. There are picnic tables on the property and you can bring a lunch and... More

We visited on one of our trips out to Lakedale in preparation for our wedding there. The place was pretty empty, so we were able to take our wine out to their patio to enjoy the nice view.

My girlfriend and I came here for the first time not really knowing what to expect. The wine was delicious and being from Seattle we're a little picky about our wine. Yvonne (the owner) was very thoughtful and even drove us to our ferry when our taxi never showed up. All of the employees made sure we were taken care... More

My wife and I were on our way back to Friday Harbor and saw the sign so we stopped. We both hate Chardonnay, but we actually bought a bottle of their Chardonnay as well as a couple bottles of Riesling and consumed the Chardonnay that night in the hot tub. Their Chardonnay isn't aged in oak and that makes all... More

We stopped by San Juan Vineyards on our way back to Friday Harbor from Roche Harbor. What a great little place for a glass of wine on the island! I ordered to glasses of red, and the pleasant gal behind the counter told me i could get a bottle for just two dollars more. So we bought a bottle, each... More

Nice vineyard and tasting room. Was wary of stopping due to some of the reviews of some of the service but stopped anyway. They were very busy so we had to wait a bit. Our server was a bit snippy but i think the owner was there so all went well. The wines we tasted were good and we did... More

This is a cute vineyard, and could be a great place to stop while driving the island. However, it is not worth stopping. Staff was extremely rude during our wine tasting on July 10th. Skip the poor service and head to the grocery store, you'll even save a dollar and enjoy it more!!

The San Juan Vineyards tasting room is cute. Tastings cost $5.00 per person for 3 wines, you can choose white or red or a combination. The woman who helped us first was very nice and personable, we had a good time talking with her - her replacement not so much. A fun stop.

A wonderful winery to stop and taste some special wines and sit on their sunny patio and have a picnic lunch. A must visit while visiting the island.

Yvonne: "I am the owner of San Juan Vineyards, and am responding to a couple of recent, poor reviews. I've spoken to my tasting room personnel regarding the situations that resulted in the poor reviews." Well, Yvonne, that didn't work. We were there (again) on Saturday and the tasting room staff (a woman in a black and white striped dress)... More

I'm aware of the Saturday situation. And, I was there working with a group on the porch, and I don't know if you were there then or when I had to take care of other duties. It was a busy day, but that's no excuse for poor customer service. I've been working diligently with this employee. She is working hard... More
