This week, IFBC participants will be descending upon this beautiful state and the Seattle area. While the schedule is jam-packed, I’m planning on taking some time to meander out to Woodinville and hit a few of my favorite wineries.
Who are my favorite wineries in Woodinville, you ask? Well…here’s a list of where you can find me when I’m in Woodinville:
JM Cellars: With a line up that leaves you unsure of what to buy (or wanting to buy everything), JM Cellars doesn’t disappoint. My personal favorites are the Bramble Bump Red and Bramble Bump White. Beware, you can easily miss their driveway, so pay attention!! Address: 14404 137th Pl NE
Guardian Cellars: Bold reds are the hallmark of Guardian Cellars. The tasting room has an funky, industrial feel and the wines have names like Chalk Line and Confidential Source. Yep. Just like what you hear on any police show. Address: 19501 144th Ave NE #E600
Sparkman Cellars: located directly next door to Guardian is Sparkman. With bold reds and enticing whites & rosé’s, this place is destined to become a favorite. Address: 19501 144th Ave NE, #E-400
Alexandria Nicole Cellars: located in the Hollywood Schoolhouse, Alexandria Nicole’s satellite tasting room delivers on their goal of approachable elegance. Address: 14810 NE 145th St.
If you’re hungry while in Woodinville, I highly recommend The Purple Café. Great food and even better ambiance!!
All in all, have fun while in Woodinville. Stop in at someplace new or go to your favorites. Whichever you choose, make it an experience!!
