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.
We have taken many wine tours in different parts of the country. This tour was excellant. The guide made this trip an A plus. Would highly recommend this outing to anyone.
Great guide, excellent wineries. Had a brilliant afternoon.
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.
Excellent. Well planned and executed. Everyone involved super nice. Wineries and wine were enjoyed by all.
A wine tour where you are picked up at your door, provided with lots of good background and history of wine in WA, along with some great wine and even some snacks... What's not to like?
We had an absolutely fabulous tour with Cara, who was passionate and enthusiastic, and very generous with her knowledge. We visited a great mix of wineries and returned home fully stocked with wine and great stories. We would recommend the tour without hesitation for both local (we live in Seattle) and visitors (we did this tour with visiting family).
Fantastic tour! We were taken to three wineries in Woodinville which were welcoming of our 10 person tour group. We took the tour so we could enjoy wine tasting without the concern of driving in unfamiliar territory. The local wine industry hosts over 100 wineries, making it almost impossible to choose among them, so appreciated the three included that day. The tour guide was excellent -- very personable and knowledgeable of Washington's wine industry. Good value for the money. Highly recommend the tour!
My sister and I had a marvelous time! We were very comfortable in the Mercedes SUV. Jeff was very knowledgeable about the area and the wines. Thank you, Jeff! You were great!
I highly recommend this tour.
My husband and I had a wonderful time and our tour guide was wonderful.
My Husband and I had a great day!! I loved how knowledgeable our tour guide was about the area and the different vineyards she took us too! Thank-you so much!
Dan, our guide, was great, he was a wealth of knowledge and made the excursion very enjoyable.
The wine tour was fantastic. It’s a short 30 minute ride from downtown Seattle, which means the majority of the time is spent at the wineries and tasting rooms. The wine is very good, and the atmosphere is fantastic. Well worth it!
Amazing! The wineries were wonderful, the tour director was great, knowledgeable, and very friendly. We were all loaded by the time we got back to our hotels. I highly recommend this. We've been home a month now and enjoying the wine we had sent to us!!
We loved this experience! The tour leader was both knowledgable and personable and the four wineries we visited were terrific. We enjoyed the six other people on our tour and highly recommend this tour to others. Our only disappointment was in joining a wine club at one of the sites and learning later that they could not ship to our home state of NC. We are currently looking for alternate ways to purchase that particular vineyards products.
What a fun afternoon! We visited quite a few venues ranging from small tasting rooms to larger venues with wide bars and outdoor seating - perfect for sunny days! Pourings are very generous and the range of wines on offer was impressive. Small group was great as allowed us to mingle with our fellow wine enthusiasts.
This makes for a great half-day trip with a difference from Seattle! Rather than being a traditional wine-growing area like Napa or Margaret River, Woodinville is a place where wine-makers from the mountains gather to trade their stock, given its close proximity to the city. This makes for smaller, more intimate venues and we enjoyed visiting 4 venues in total and tasting the delicious Washington wines on offer. Snacks were plentiful too and our friendly guide supplied us with a tasty cheese and salami platter during our longest stop. He also gave us a useful insight into the geology of the Washington state and how it lends itself to wine production, which was extremely interesting. Highly recommended for wine enthusiasts and those looking or a few relaxed afternoon drinks out of the city!
got a good understanding of wine culture of the area.. Enjoyed the wineries selected.
Van needs a sound system, hard to hear.
Great guide. Small group was fun. Would have liked to taste more whites.
Kristin - our guide was a wonderful tour guide and I would recommend asking for her if you book a Wine Tour. We had a great group and it was fun getting to know folks we would not have otherwise met. My friends and I would book again if we spend time in the Seattle area again.
Very interesting trip, particularly because the tour guide (Kara), knew so much about the area, the wine, and was so enthusiastic to share her love of wine with everybody.
Our second time on this tour-we joined two wine clubs the last time and another this year. This time, our guide was a little inexperienced: it was only her second time guiding and she was not a wine enthusiast, so the experience lacked a little. Still, the selection of stops and the ability to meet the wine makers (particularly at JM, our favorite!) is wonderful.
We had a great time on our wine tour. It was just the two of us and the driver, who was pleasant and knowledgable about the area and wines. We would highly recommend this tour.
Overall we had fun. The guide and driver were very informative about the City and the wineries. They called the day before, picked us up on time at the hotel, and dropped us off downtown at the Space Needle. The wineries were nice selections, as was the cheese/meat/snack platter provided. The reason I only give it 3 stars is because they did not take us to 4 wineries as the tour schedule noted. It was only 3. Also, they had no knowledge of the complimentary bottle of wine mentioned on this site. One of the reasons we picked this tour was because it went to 4 wineries. We felt we could have shortened the time at the 3 to have room for the 4th. When we mentioned both to our guide, he noted that they reduced it to 3 because people were too intoxicated on past tours to enjoy the 4th. He checked on the complimentary wine since he had no knowledge of that offer and worked it out that the last winery gave the whole tour group the 'deal' even though they had not booked through Viator. That was really nice of that winery and our guide!!
Just a few notes to update the tour for future customers so they know what to expect.
