Before we get into what we love about Columbia Winery, let’s talk a bit more about Woodinville. Located a short drive from Seattle in the Sammamish River Valley, Woodinville is definitely Washington’s winery hub. It is home to Columbia Winery and Chateau Ste. Michelle, as well as over 100 other wineries and tasting rooms and 26 restaurants and eateries! As such it’s a fantastic place for Northwest wine lovers. The wineries even offer a yearly “passport” that guarantees you special discounts to Woodinville events and one complimentary wine tasting at each participating winery (passports can be purchased online).
Back to Columbia Winery – the winemaker Sean Hails sources grapes from across the Columbia River Valley, including Yakima, Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and Red Mountain. Columbia Winery specializes in reds, particularly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, but they do produce a wide variety of wines, including Chardonnay, Riesling and Syrah. This selection is particularly well-suited for the transition into cooler Fall weather, which typically calls for medium-bodied reds and full-bodied whites.
Columbia Winery also offers a great tasting room, with exclusive flights of wine, seasonal flatbreads and Northwest-inspired cuisine; all with educational classes (including how to craft wine & cheese pairings) and monthly live music!
