A Quick Green Escape from Seattle

See also

Those visiting Seattle looking for a quick tour of Washington State wineries can hop on board EverGreen Escapes Woodinville Wine Trail Tour. This half-day guided tour takes one through Woodinville Wine Country, situated just 30 miles northeast of downtown Seattle. Here one can find fruit from almost every American Viticultural Area (AVA) in Washington State with nearly 100 wineries and tasting rooms.

On this tour one can avoid the large tour buses stopping off at the large wineries and then rushed through a tasting. Instead, join a small intimate group of up to 10 people escorted in a plush bio-diesel Mercedes van for a visit to at least three award-winning boutique wineries for wine tastings and possibly a tour. Also included will be a sampling of local meats and cheeses. Along the way, the guide will relay the history of Washington State wines, as well as answering any other questions pertaining to the state's local and natural history. Pick up is available at downtown hotels or in Willows Lodge & Spa in Woodinville.

Those looking for a more immersive experience can book their Northwest Wine Getaway Package. This includes two nights accommodation in a Nicer style room at Willows Lodge, $100 credit for dining at the Barking Frog, as well as partaking in the amenities offered by the Woodinville Wine Tour.
