Small-Group Wine-Tasting Tour Through Woodinville

Educational Wine Tour

Tucked away in the beautiful Sammamish River Valley just 30 minutes northeast of Seattle is Woodinville Wine Country, home to over 100 wineries with tasting rooms representing every appellation in the state of Washington.

From the historic to the quaint, a wonderful variety of wine-tasting experiences awaits on this 5.5-hour Woodinville wine-tasting tour.

After a downtown Seattle hotel pickup, climb into a comfortable van or luxury sports utility vehicle and get ready to spend the afternoon tasting some of the best wines in the region.

On this tour, visit three boutique wineries — such as Lauren Ashton Cellars, a winery noted for crafting artisanal wines, Kestrel Vintners, with four tiers of wine, and William Church Winery, whose award-winning Viognier is considered one of the best in the state. 

Meet the region’s winemakers and learn about the interesting “vine-to-wine” process. Unlike larger areas that mass produce their product quickly, the boutique wineries of the Woodinville region focus on quality over quantity, pouring their heart and soul into each and every bottle.

Throughout the tour, pair the wine tasting with local meats, cheeses and crackers while soaking up the beautiful scenery.

Itinerary

Three of the wineries you visit may include:
  • Kit Singh of Lauren Ashton Cellars: Made entirely from Northwest grapes, Kit Singh of Lauren Ashton Cellars, is defining the craft of Northwest wines. In a European-style, the winemaker’s chemistry degree creates distinct flavors and deliciously smart wines.
  • Celaeno: A small and authentic boutique winery, producing 750 cases per year, Celaeno excels in breaking the normal rules of wine making. Enjoy Okanagan Valley sourced Pinot Noir and wines fermented in oak barrels originating from Hungary, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania.
  • William Church Winery: Taste the splendor of Washington wines through their highly rated Viognier, Malbec, and Bordeaux blends. In the ambiance of a working winery, this stop allows you to focus on balance, power, dimension and finesse when wine tasting.
  • Kestrel Vintners: Innovatively crafts wines of the highest caliber, showcasing the unique terroir of the Pacific Northwest. Through passion, knowledge and stewardship, their wines reveal masterfully tended vineyards, innovative wine making techniques, and unrivaled hospitality

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.
