It’s officially Taste Washington wine month! Throughout March, select wineries and restaurants in the state are offering special takeout menus (plan ahead in ordering – they go fast!), along with recipes for a taste of Washington wines once you return home. Find information on their website: www.tastewashington.org and join in their virtual event!
Ready to explore nearby wineries, but want someone else to do the driving? Seattle-area tour company Bon Vivant offers safe, customized wine tours for a half- or full-day, including nearby Woodinville – home of more than 100 tasting rooms. Lunches and snacks can easily be arranged in advanced. If you’d prefer to designate a driver and head out on your own, Woodinville Wine Country produces a fabulous guide to help you explore their region (just 20 minutes east from downtown Seattle).
Looking for something different? Seattle Urban Wineries is a collective of more than 20 wineries in and around the city. Hop and Uber, or your DD, and enjoy some of these fun, quirky and hyper-local spots. Their tasting map makes it even easier! https://www.seattleurbanwineries.com/locations.
And, of course, if you’d simply like to enjoy a bottle of Washington wine while staying at our inns, each of our innkeeper’s would be delighted to point you to the closest wine shop with a perfect selection to sip during your stay. Cheers!
