Recently, GQ published the 20 NEW Rules of Drinking (and Buying) Wine: “Thanks to a generation of adventurous lushes, the wine world is younger and funner and delicious-er than ever. Here’s all you need to know to navigate that world, find the best bottles (and cans!), drink above your pay grade, and say screw you to the old rules.”

Here’s Woodinville’s originals and some repurposed GQ :

The Best Wine Class We’ve Been to… Columbia Winery’s Education Series with Shelly Fitzgerald (click here) but private tasting appointments… will leave you just a little bit smarter, too.

Even The Hampton Inn and Suites Provides Some Winecation in the very same parking lot – Avennia Winery, Tsillan Cellars and Tertulia Winery…check out the new Gateway wineries.

Not all Wine-speak is Gibberish…for staying in the know on Washington wines visit Wine Press Northwest!

Have a wine emergency…Just stock up at Feb 16th’s Woodinville Wines Under $25 event at Willows Lodge (click here)

Don’t Be Too Snobby for Costco…there are more than a dozen Woodinville wines at Costco (some with scores over 94pts!)

Sparkling Wine is Exploding: Only a few in Woodinville but after you enjoy a taste of Chateau Ste. Michelle’s be sure to visit Patterson Cellars, Lachini Vineyards and Rocky Pond Winery!

The Best Way to Get Into Wine: Invest in a Glass…Woodinville’s Columbia winery hosted the 10th generation owner, George Riedel himself. One comparison with fine crystal and you’ll never go back to cheap glass or plastic!

Everything You Used to Eat With Beer Tastes Better With Wine: Well, not necessarily. In fact Woodinville wouldn’t be the same with out its micro-beer and distillery scene! (click here)

Wine Bars Are Now the Best Places to Eat: Check out Purple Café or Village Wines in the heart of Hollywood Circle and see for yourself! Yum

Passport to Woodinville…Your gateway to learn more with over 60 participating wineries breweries and distilleries. Still available at Costco – but not for long! (click here)

And If All This Is Too Confusing, Learn to Stop First at the Woodinville Visitor Center – They are open 11-3pm daily and ready for your questions. You can even leave with a Tote for all that “grape juice” you’ll be purchasing! (click here)
