The wine tasting here were $10 per person. That is more than I am used to paying. They did give 15% off if you purchased anything though. The wine was very good, the gift shop quite nice, and the grounds were lovely. I am told you are allowed to picnic there in the summer when the weather is nice.
We had no idea that only 15 minutes from Kirkland is Woodenville; a must see if you like to visit wine tasting rooms. We went to Chateau Ste. Michelle and were pleasantly surprised. The staff are great, kudos’s go to Rudi who gave a great tour! The grounds and chateau are beautiful.
Not much else to say. We stopped here to kill time before our reservation at Chateau Ste Michelle, which is just across the street. The building is huge and beautiful, but its just a tasting room. The wines were ok. They had just opened and weren't busy, but service was still lacking a bit and sort of slow until they traded out employees. The gentleman that was first serving us was definately not thrilled to be there, but then the girl that replaced him was much more friendly and enthusiastic. All in all I left uninspired.
Is a small venue, with a great host. She told us about the family who owned the winery along with each wine we tasted. All of the wines we tried were good. We bought one to take home with us. No food available. Bring your own if you want something to eat.
Our server was very knowledgeable about the winery and the wines that they make. Paid $10 per person for tasting for reds and whites.
