What You Can Expect

Small-Group Wine-Tasting Tour Through Woodinville

Educational Wine Tour

Located about 30 minutes northeast of Seattle, the Woodinville wine country is bursting with more than 100 delightful wineries and tasting rooms that showcase some of Washington’s most unique varietals and the terroir of the Pacific Northwest. After downtown Seattle hotel pickup, hop aboard a plush, bio-diesel Mercedes van or luxury SUV, and spend a relaxing afternoon tasting some of the best wines in the region.

Start your small-group wine-tasting tour with a drive to the first of three award-winning boutique wineries in the picturesque Sammamish River Valley, and learn about the interesting vine-to-wine process from winemaking experts. You’ll discover that unlike the ‘mass production’ approach of some popular wine regions, these small-scale Woodinville wineries are dedicated to creating the highest-quality product in small quantities — you’ll gain a true appreciation for the craft that goes into each bottle.

In addition to touring the wineries, you’ll taste elegant wines in an intimate but unpretentious atmosphere. Cleanse your palate with local meats and cheeses, then relax and enjoy the picturesque Woodinville scenery as your driver takes you back to the big city.

Had no idea there were so many wineries in Washington. Wish you had been able to pick us up in Sea-Tac. Not knowing the area, we hired transportation in at a cost of 20 each but rode the train back out.

This trip was fantastic! Very intimate as we only shared the tour with one other couple.
Barbara and Mitch are the best!!!
It was much different than I imagined as we saw 3 distinctly opposing wineries. Each unique to their own standards and none of them let us down.
We learned more about wine in one day than I have acquired my whole life.
Highly recommend this tour.

Great that food and water was included! Kirsten was very knowledgable about wine making in WA and great for recommending things for us to do after our tour in the Seattle area.

We enjoyed the personal service at the first and third locations. The 2nd location had a great host but not so personal.
