Winter Getaway: A Weekend in the Seattle Wine Town of Woodinville

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.
