Snoqualmie Falls & Woodinville Wine Tasting Experience from Seattle

Snoqualmie Falls & Woodinville Wine Tasting Experience from Seattle

Experience the essence of Washington’s wild beauty and independent spirit on the Snoqualmie Falls & Woodinville Wine Tasting Experience from Seattle.

Start your day at Snoqualmie Falls where you’ll watch the powerful waters plunge 268 feet down into the river canyon below. Your guide will use these evocative settings to tell stories of Snoqualmie tribe members who lived off these lands and settlers who fought to tame the wild environment with agriculture and logging.

After exploring the Falls, you’ll travel to Woodinville Wine Country for a gourmet picnic lunch and wine tastings at three wineries that deliver on elegance but leave pretense at the door. Learn to sip like a sommelier with a fun lesson on wine tasting techniques and the flavor profiles of different varietals. Meet passionate wine makers and hear the processes used to craft the wine in your glass. Experience Woodinville’s tight-knit community and taste award-winning wines that are rarely found outside of the state. Washington is the second biggest wine-producer in the country but exports only 1% of its wine!

Itinerary

Start your tour with a short drive across Lake Washington and along scenic highway to Snoqualmie Falls, one of Washington’s most breathtaking attraction. You'll experience the 268? waterfall tumbling into the emerald canyon below and discuss its cultural and economic significance. The surrounding area overflows with mountain peaks, forests, lakes, rivers and streams, which your guide will bring to life as they help you spot wildlife and birds and describe the geologic forces that have shaped the land.

After exploring Snoqualmie Falls, you'll make your way through historic farmland to the Woodinville wine region. Once renowned for its numerous dairy farms, including the world-famous Carnation Dairy, the fertile Snoqualmie River Valley remains a highly productive farming community with many of the farms practicing organic or other sustainable farming methods. Spend the remainder of the afternoon savoring local wines in the close-knit community of Woodinville in Washington’s Sammamish River Valley.

Wineries

Along with sharing a common location, all of the Woodinville wineries share the vision of creating world-class wine from the finest Washington vineyards. This wine tasting tour highlights three award-winning boutique wineries in an intimate and relaxed atmosphere. The focus is education and enjoyment as you meet with winemakers, tour wineries and, of course, taste great wine! You will visit three of these select wineries:

  • Lauren Ashton Cellar - Defining the craft of Washington wines. In a European style, the winemaker’s chemistry degree creates distinct flavors and deliciously smart wines.
  • Celaeno - A small and authentic boutique winery producing 750 cases per year which excels in breaking the normal rules of wine making. Enjoy Okanagan Valley sourced Pinot Noir and wines fermented in oak barrels originating from Hungary, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania.
  • William Church Winery - Taste the splendor of Washington wines through their highly rated Viognier, Malbec, and Bordeaux blends. In the ambiance of a working winery, this stop allows you to focus on balance, power, dimension and finesse when wine tasting.
  • Kestrel Vintners - Crafts innovative wines of the highest caliber, showcasing the unique terroir of the Pacific Northwest. Through passion, knowledge and stewardship, their wines reveal masterfully tended vineyards, innovative winemaking techniques, and unrivaled hospitality.
  • Martedi Winery - Two brothers make bold wines and operate the working winery on their very own. They feel that Washington State vineyards hold a distinction that is gaining worldwide attention and gives them the opportunity to make unique wines. Their goal is to let each vineyard and varietal guide the resulting wine by letting the grapes display their individual qualities from vintage to vintage.
  • Patterson Cellars - Winemaker and owner John Patterson creates approachable wines that reflect the new-world style in winemaking, producing over 4,000 cases of wine each year. Wines from the Patterson Cellars portfolio receive 90 plus points from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Wine Advocate from year to year, which speaks to the quality, consistency and caliber of the wine he creates.
