Five ways to discover your cultural hub in Everett

Cultivate your social life with the help of friendly downtown winery

If you like to blend social interactions with your enjoyment of a nice glass of wine, there’s some great ways to do so in Everett, and even meet the producers of your vino.

Chris and Linnea Covington, who own and operate Port Gardner Bay Winery in downtown Everett, have created a cultural hub on Rucker Avenue for your charity gatherings, music nights and art openings, as well as a cozy space for wine tastings.

“It’s more of a passion than anything else,” says Chris, who operates his structural engineering firm by day in the same building. He enjoys connecting with local people who have similar cultural interests: “We have regular clients that come in, drink the wine, listen to the music and have some fun.”

Here’s more ways to enjoy Port Gardner Bay Winery:

  1. Work as a team Your non-profit community group has a perfect option for fundraiser events partnering with the winery. Chris and Linnea regularly open their space to groups ranging from the Assistance League of Everett and Make-A-Wish to the YMCA.
  2. Make some new friends Whether it’s through the regular music or open mic nights, art openings or the popular grape crush gatherings, getting involved here is a great way to meet new people with common interests.
  3. Volunteer in a fun, social environment As a small, boutique winery, Port Gardner Bay produces between 20 and 40 barrels per year, but it’s the bottling sessions in the basement that can be the most fun part of getting the wine ready to drink. Community members often lend a hand in this stage of the winemaking process.
  4. Unleash your artsy side For many people, having a glass of wine helps get your creative juices flowing. Ask about the Paint and Pour classes that combine education about painting with enjoying a glass of vino.
  5. Learn from the experts Every third Saturday of the month from 2-4 p.m., you can join a winemaking class on site (unless a wine crush is happening). Remember to call for reservations (425-339-0293), as these classes fill up quickly!

Blend your wine, music and art tastes

There’s plenty of varietals to choose from on the current wine list, and a selection of flavorful food items on the menu. And with live music scheduled every Thursday (open mic), Friday and Saturday evening, it’s a great way to unwind at the end of the week. And you’re surrounded by artwork from a variety of local artists.

“We have a local culinary expert as our art curator,” Linnea says, noting the winery also hosts an art walk event. “We’ve become kind of an impromptu gallery for Everett.”

She adds that the winery is a place anyone can feel comfortable, singles, couples or groups. “It’s also a great place for a first date!”


The tasting room is open Thursdays through Saturdays. You can also follow Port Gardner Bay Winery on Facebook.
