Samson Estates Winery is offering summer fun right here in Whatcom County. This family-owned winery grew out of a passion for doing more with the berries the family was already growing. Located on farmland in the Nooksack Valley, the winery has seen success over the years, creating award-winning wines since 2002. Featuring both berry and grape varieties, its dessert wines are popular amongst regulars.

In addition to competing in wine competitions all over the country and selling its wine both from its website, www.samsonestates.com, and in stores, the Samson Estates Winery team has created a place where people can have a good time.

From relaxing on the patio amongst the berry fields to rocking out on the lawn during one of its concerts, Samson Estates Winery offers a variety of fun. Open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., one can stop in to sample their wines. There’s also still time to check out their summer concert series, with three remaining shows on this season’s schedule.

On July 17th, Baby Cakes will perform from 2 to 4 p.m. in the pavilion. This 10-piece band — a Whatcom County favorite — has been entertaining local music-loving crowds since 2014. Based out of Bellingham, the band treats fans to the sounds of American Soul, funk, and R&B. More information on Baby Cakes can be found here, and tickets for this concert are available here.

This show will be followed up the following week by Fossil Rock, who perform on July 23rd from noon to 4 p.m.. This local band — whose logo features a Tyrannosaurs Rex playing an electric guitar — has been rocking out from Kelowna B.C. to Las Vegas for more than 21 years. Stop into Samson Estate’s Winery to hear them play rock and roll from the 1950s and ’60s. Tickets for this concert can be purchased here.

The final concert of the summer, on August 13th, features singer/songwriter Joe Harkness, who will play country music. Harkness is a talented Whatcom County local who graduated from Mount Baker High School. This is your chance to catch him locally before he makes a move to Nashville, Tennessee. Tickets for this concert can be purchased here.

All concerts are $5 per person, and while seating is limited in the pavilion, there’s always plenty of room on the lawn, so feel free to bring your lawn chairs or blankets and spread out with friends and family.

On August 13th, food truck WTF – Where’s The Food will be there to provide a variety of options ranging from seafood to burgers. Feel free to bring your own food to the other concerts. They ask that folks not bring in outside drinks, as Samson Estate Winery wines are available for sale in addition to beers, seltzers, and ciders.

If you’re unable to make it out to one of this season’s remaining concerts but still want to party at this beautiful location, the pavilion can be rented for your own event. You can reserve your date here or by contacting Samson Estates Winery directly at info@samsonestates.com or by calling 360-966-7787 ext. 2.

Samson Estates Winery is located at 1861 Van Dyk Road in Everson.
