Woodinville: Board Track Racer Tasting Room

 

Board Track Racer Tasting Room Coming to Woodinville

From Mark Ryan Winery

SEATTLE, February 1, 2018 — Mark McNeilly is excited to announce that he’s opening a new tasting room in Woodinville, this time dedicated to his Board Track Racer line of Washington wines. Located at 19501 144th Ave F-900 in Woodinville’s Warehouse District, the tasting room will open its doors on Saturday, February 24 at 12pm.

Board Track Racer Cellars, one of Mark Ryan Winery’s sister projects, produced its first vintage in 2008 and is named for the wild wood track motorcycle races of the 1920s. The labels for all the wines are inspired by the same era, with great motorcycle-centric graphics—McNeilly is a big fan of vintage motorcycles and the freewheeling spirit they convey. 

 

The current Board Track Racer wines are:

The Vincent Red (Columbia Valley Blend)

The Vincent White (Chardonnay)

The Chief (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot)

The Shift (Syrah, Mourvedre)

 

With inviting gray walls, blond wood, and a communal table for 12, the Board Track Racer tasting room will have a relaxed, motorcycle and rock-n-roll vibe, like the Mark Ryan tasting room. The space has a glass garage door that will offer guests a peek into barrel storage that is shared with neighboring wineries. Capacity is about 85 making the tasting a great option for private events too. 

“The Board Track Racers wines are wonderfully accessible both in taste and price point,” says McNeilly. “I’m thrilled to have a second Woodinville venue to share the wines!”

The tasting room will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm – 6pm, pouring tastes of the Board Track Racer wines, as well as select bottles from both Megan Anne Cellars and Mark Ryan Winery on rotation. For more information, call 425.481.7070. 

Established in 1999 by Mark Ryan McNeilly, Mark Ryan Winery is an acclaimed Washington winery based in Woodinville, just north of Seattle. A largely self-taught winemaker, the first vintages were crushed and produced in garages of friends and family—in the years since, the winery has grown in size, earning respect and acclaim from wine lovers and critics alike along the way. The goal has always been to make delicious wines that stand as true representations of the vineyard from which they come. For more information, visit www.markryanwinery.com.

Affordable “Your Car + Our Driver” concept perfect for Woodinville and Walla Walla wine tours, Seattle nights out and last-minute safe driving needs

NEW YORK – Feb. 9, 2017Main Street Drivers (www.mainstreetdrivers.com), which provides professional drivers to chauffeur clients in their own vehicles around to personalized destinations, announced an expansion of its services to the Western Washington region, with a focus on the greater Seattle area and suburbs, including the popular wine destinations of Seattle Urban Wineries and Woodinville Wine Country.

All drivers are insured, vetted and have gone through a comprehensive background check, and many are well-versed in the local wine culture, able to make recommendations on wineries to visit and help plan the most efficient and enjoyable tasting afternoon based on individual preferences.

 “I’m so proud to extend Main Street Drivers’ services into the greater Seattle area to provide unparalleled customer service and a responsible, affordable way to enjoy the amazing wineries and other tasting destinations near Seattle,” said James Hirtenstein, Owner and Founder of Main Street Drivers. “We pride ourselves on our reputation established with our East Coast services and the numerous repeat customers we serve. Knowing how popular the Walla Walla and Woodinville wine regions are, it was a natural decision to expand to the Pacific Northwest and bring our innovative services to locals and tourists alike.”

 Main Street Drivers began offering its services on the east end of Long Island, with a specific focus in the Hamptons, in 2011, and has been awarded the “Best Car/Limo Service Readers’ Choice Gold Award” by Long Island publication Dan’s Papers every year since. With the addition of drivers available in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and, now, the Seattle area, this unique service is the perfect fit for a variety of occasions such as:

·         Brewery, winery, and spirit distillery tours

·         Executive travel

·         Nights on the town (party-hopping, concerts, sporting events, etc.)

·         General travel about town

·         Culinary and beverage events

·         Designated drivers for one-way pick-ups
