Seattle Wineries Tour
Seattle Wineries Tour
Explore wine tasting at some of Washington's award-winning estate wineries. Our tour will take you over Lake Washington on Seattle's famous Evergreen Point Bridge, the world's second-longest floating bridge, to the quaint little town of Woodinville. Washington has been the second-largest wine producer in the United States for years and has produced top-scoring wines year after year. Once solely limited to large corporate wineries, the desire for more of an intimate wine-tasting experience closer to Seattle has resulted in over 130 different wineries being established throughout Woodinville alone. Despite the 3+ hour drive to the actual vineyards that produce these spectacular wines to the east of the Cascade Mountains, Woodinville is a short ride away from you having access to a cornucopia of wines.
Small family-owned, estate-boutique wineries provide a warm, intimate wine-tasting experience where we get to know the story behind the wine, the people whose passion drives it, and the journey that got them to where they are now. Our first winery will be one of many of these wineries where we will get invited into their story for around an hour to experience firsthand, amongst new friends and old ones too, a variety of red wines, white wines, and various blends. Learn how to taste and identify the various notes being presented. Before you venture out to experience your next winery, your guide will provide you with a list of award-winning wineries that are within walking distance. Wineries such as; Maryhill, Patterson, Gorman, Mark Ryan, Airfield, Chandler Reach, and Alexandria Nicole anticipate your visit and look forward to getting to know you as you get to know them. There will be an opportunity to purchase lunch nearby with a variety of food options. Get out and explore as you satisfy your palate!
En route to Snoqualmie Falls, you will enjoy seeing lush Northwest scenery including Rolling Cascade mountain views, seasonal flower farms, the ever-flowing Snoqualmie River, expansive pastures, historical landmarks, and perhaps even some wildlife. The falls are a long-revered attraction with rich Native American history as well as being one of the most visited natural attractions within the state of Washington. There are beautiful gardens, a trail, and a small gift shop where you can purchase souvenirs.
Depending on time constraints, the guide may be able to include a brief stop for a sweet treat. Tasting fees ($20-$35 average) are not covered by the cost of the tour but are often waived with a minimum purchase.
