An Insider’s Guide to Woodinville Wine Country

Posted on: January 2nd, 2019 | Posted in: News

Fodor’s Travel knows it. You should too. Woodinville is “Seattle’s Wine Country Where Grown Ups Go to Play,” as the publication wrote for a recent article on wine tasting in Seattle’s favorite wine country suburb. “This is a 21st century grownup getaway, fueled by a variety of high-quality alcohol; sumptuous gourmet foodie fare (conscientiously curated with local, seasonal, and sustainable goals in mind); and most importantly, an easygoing host of a town where hospitality and sincerity seem almost interchangeable,” writes Rachael Levitt.  Along with Novelty Hill-Januik, described as “sophisticated, stunning and stylish,” you’ll find additional recommendations for top eateries, places to stay and other wineries to visit too. 

If a long weekend is in the works, San Francisco’s 7×7 offers a three-day itinerary for enthusiasts planning a winter getaway in Woodinville Wine Country.  “The Washington wine scene has exploded in recent years, but unlike Napa and Sonoma, the vineyards are not easy to get to, planted about a four-hour drive from Seattle. Enter the idyllic town of Woodinville. You won’t find stunning vineyard landscapes here, but instead a bounty of friendly, low-key tasting rooms pouring delicious and most importantly, affordable vino,” writes 7×7’s Jess Lander. Check out her list of recommended tasting rooms and other top venues, and start planning your trip today.
