Things to Do in Woodinville, WA

When the Seattle summer sun shines, there’s nothing better than experiencing Woodinville Wine Country (one of the great winemaking regions of the world). Whether you’re looking for a crisp riesling or a robust cabernet sauvignon, the wineries of Woodinville have a tipple to tempt your palate.

Among the most acclaimed is Chateau Ste. Michelle, with roots dating back to the repeal of Prohibition, and the founding winery of the area. Using state-of-the-art winemaking equipment and sustainable farming practices, Chateau Ste. Michelle has garnered numerous awards, including United States Wine Producer of the Year at the 2012 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC).
