Thirty minutes northeast of Seattle, Woodinville is a wine oasis for Washington wine lovers. With over 100 wineries and tasting rooms in close proximity, wine tourists don’t have to travel far to find a wide selection of wine tastings, dinners and events. Exceptional lodging and food options, such as Willows Lodge, The Herbfarm Restaurant and the Barking Frog, further Woodinville’s claim as a great wine destination. The vast majority of wines poured in Woodinville, often by the winemakers themselves, are produced in Washington’s top vineyards located east of the Cascades. Other Woodinville attractions include waterfront parks on the Sammamish River, the Redhook brewery and the nearby Puget Sound and Cascade Mountains.
