Located only 30 minutes northeast of the Emerald City, Woodinville is home to 120 wine tasting rooms, a dozen or so breweries and distilleries, and 30 restaurants.

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.

Get a crash course in Washington wine in just 48 hours. Simply fly into Sea-Tac and either rent a car or Uber/Lyft up to Woodinville, where for the most part, you can get around on foot.>>>Read the entire article featuring Chateau Ste.
