Over the last 20 years, the state of Washington has catapulted into the role of the country's #2 wine producing region due to its ideal climate and its steadfast cadre of artisanal winemakers. This Washington winery tour takes you out of Seattle and into Woodinville, home to dozens of premium boutique wineries, and the world-class Chateau Ste. Michelle winery. Tour and taste your way through the region and marvel at the stunning beauty of the landscape, including a stop at the breathtaking Snoqualmie Falls.
Start your Washington winery tour in Seattle, leaving the city over the Evergreen Pt. Bridge, the world's second longest floating bridge on Lake Washington. Meander into Woodinville, where you'll stop at a premium boutique winery. Then, visit the famous Chateau Ste. Michelle, makers of some of America's best-loved and most popular wines. Relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Cascade Mountains foothills, winding your way past in-season flower farms, horse ranches, and vineyards before arriving at the magnificent Snoqualmie Falls. Reaching a height of almost 270 feet, the falls are both sacred ground for the Snoqualmie Native American tribe that inhabits the Puget Sound region, and a famous film and television location, appearing onscreen in the long-running TV series "Twin Peaks." On your trip back to Seattle, you'll cap off your Washington State winery tour with a stop at Boehms Candies in Issaquah, where you'll sample the handcrafted chocolate delicacies the artisans at Boehms have been making for over 70 years.
