Once you’re there

Go explore! Click here for a full list of wineries. If you want a guided tour of a winery, check out Chateau Ste. Michelle (you also get a free taste of wine at the end of the tour!). In the summers, Chateau Ste. Michelle also features a “Summer Concert Series.” If you’re looking to try multiple wineries and don’t want to drive around, check out the Woodinville Warehouse Wineries – ’40 Artisan Wineries within a 1 minute radius’. For something a little different, go to the Redhook Brewery! There you can visit their pub and restaurant, or go on a tour of the brewery – only $1 and you get to taste some beer AND a souvenir tasting glass.

Where to stay

Relax in Woodinville at the Matthews Estate B&B, where you can also try Matthews Estate Wines in their tasting room. Or try the pet friendly and oh so swanky Willows Lodge, right next to the Columbia Winery and Chateau Ste. Michelle. To find other hotels in the area, visit this website.
