The folks at Seattle Wine Tours do a really good job. They will pick you up at your downtown hotel and wisk you away to the tasting rooms in the Woodinville area. Tours are customized to match your wine interests and level of knowledge. They know the people at every single winery and can sometimes get you into places that are very difficult to see. If you just want a general tour of the area, they can arrange for that, as well. Our guide, Mary, was extremely professional and seemed to know everyone at the various tasting rooms. The tour was a great way to spend four or five hours if you have any interest at all in wine.
The Woodinville area is only about a half hour northeast from downtown Seattle. There are now somewhere on the order of eighty tasting rooms in the area. Almost none of the grapes are grown in the Seattle area -- the vast majority are grown in the high desert area across the Cascade range in the eastern half of Washington. The tasting rooms have been set up in the Woodinville area because of its proximity to Seattle. Also, most of the top quality Washington state wines are reds.
